Design a doubly linked list, Data Structure & Algorithms

Instructions :

  • You have to design a doubly linked list container.
  • The necessary classes and their declarations are given below
  • The main() function for testing the your design is also given below. The outputs form each of the output statements are provided in the text box for your comparison.
  • So complete the program by supplying your implementations of the member functions. Some are already implemented, use as it is.

// List . h


class List;


std::ostream& operator<< (std::ostream& os, const List& l);


class Link;


class ListIterator;

            friend std::ostream& operator<< (std::ostream& os, const List& l);

~List();                                                  // destructor

List & operator = (const List & rhs);  // assignment operator

T& front() const;                                                // returns the front element

void push_front(const T& e);                  // adds from front

void pop_front();                                               // deletes from front

T& back() const;                                                // returns the last element

void push_back(const T& e);                 // adds from back

void pop_back();                                               // deletes the last element

void clear();                                                       // emptied by deleting all elements in it

bool empty() const;                                           // return true if list id empty

int size() const;                                      // returns the no. of elements

Iterator begin();

Iterator end();
