Detailed Description

doubly-linked list

The list head is of 'struct wl_list' type, and must be initialized using wl_list_init(). All entries in the list must be of the same type. The item type must have a 'struct wl_list' member. This member will be initialized by wl_list_insert(). There is no need to call wl_list_init() on the individual item. To query if the list is empty in O(1), use wl_list_empty().

Let's call the list reference 'struct wl_list foo_list', the item type as 'item_t', and the item member as 'struct wl_list link'.

The following code will initialize a list:

    struct wl_list foo_list;

    struct item_t {
            int foo;
            struct wl_list link;
    struct item_t item1, item2, item3;

 wl_list_insert(&foo_list, &item1.link);    Pushes item1 at the head
 wl_list_insert(&foo_list, &item2.link);    Pushes item2 at the head
 wl_list_insert(&item2.link, &item3.link); Pushes item3 after item2

The list now looks like [item2, item3, item1]

Will iterate the list in ascending order:

 item_t *item;
 wl_list_for_each(item, foo_list, link) {
