circular, doubly-linked list class
UList implements a circular, doubly-linked list. The sentinel and
each entry in the list are instances of the UList class, each
containing a void pointer to the data they contain as well as pointers
to the next and previous UList instance in the list. The sentinel
UList instance is considered to represent the list.
- UList(void* = nil)
Create a new UList instance, optionally supplying the value for the
void pointer it stores.
- virtual ~UList()
Delete the entire list. Normally the sentinel, which represents the
list, is the entry that is deleted explicitly. Note that the data on
the list, stored as void*'s, cannot be deleted in this manner.
- void Append(UList*)
- void Prepend(UList*)
When performed on the sentinel, Append appends an element to the end
of the list and Prepend prepends it to the beginning of the list.
When performed on a UList instance other than the sentinel, Append has
the effect of inserting its argument before the instance, while
Prepend has the effect of inserting it after the instance.
- void Remove(UList*)
Unlink the specified UList instance from the list it is in. The
object on which this operation is called is irrelevant.
- void Delete(void*)
Find the UList instance in this list containing the given void
pointer, remove it from the list it is in, and delete it.
- UList* Find(void*)
Return the UList instance in this list containing the given void
- UList* First()
- UList* Last()
- UList* End()
- UList* Next()
- UList* Prev()
Return various UList instance in the list relative to this,
i.e., as if it were the sentinel. End returns the sentinel
(this) and is useful for detecting the end of an iteration
through the list; the other operations are self-explanatory.
- boolean IsEmpty()
Return whether or not the list has any elements.
- void* operator()()
Return the void pointer that the UList stores.
- UList* operator(int i)
Return the ith UList in the list, where the next element is the
