i took this code from internet and i was analyzing the code .i have a doubt at line 33 and line 45 where start=insert_s(start,co,ex); is available but at line 72 struct node *insert(struct node *start,float co,int ex) doesnot have a link but code works correctly please solve dis

please help

Please don't bump your threads unless you have new information. It's rude in general because it presumes that we haven't been following your thread since its inception, and suggests an attitude of arrogance and entitlement (ie. "my thread is more important than all of the others"). By bumping you can also sabotage yourself. Some people will choose *not* to help you for no reason other than the bump.
