Data Structure – Array based linked lists

Another alternative is to allocate the nodes in blocks. In fact, if you know the maximum size of a list a head of time, you can pre-allocate the nodes in a single array. The result is a hybrid structure – an array based linked list. Figure 3.5.1 shows an example of null terminated single linked list where all the nodes are allocated contiguously in an array.
