EDIT: Yep, I messed up the title....

I just figured I'd put this up since there aren't very many code base entries and a lot of people ask for this type of thing.

It's used for keeping track of as many items as you want of any type.

You should know about this:

Here is the Codebase entry:

Ok, I guess it was a good practice for you to write a linked list class for yourself (did this once too, as part of a C++ tutorial book) but why not just use std::list instead? It's a much approved STL container that is very useful and easy to work with. People who want to manage their game objects may also consider std::vector.

Ya I'm actually changing it a bit for a game I'm working on. Just so many people seemed to want to know how to do this that I'd figured it'd be a good reference if they wanted to write one for themselves.

Also, I don't use std much so it didn't come to mind to look for an existing linked list. Oh well, it didn't take long to write, and now it's more flexible.
