}

VOID FUNCTION (INT K)

INT MM,N=&M

KN = K

KN+-=10;

}

3. Here is the structure declaration of a doubly linked list

{

int nodeid;

A pointer of the head of the linked list is maintained as a global variable, whose definition is

rp and adjust the head. The first node's prev and the last node's next are NULL.

{

rp->prev->next = rp->next;

rp->next->prev = rp->prev;

}
