﻿ C Program: Convert a Doubly Linked list into a string

# C Exercises: Convert a Doubly Linked list into a string

## C Doubly Linked List : Exercise-21 with Solution

Write a C program to convert a Doubly Linked list into a string.

Sample Solution:

C Code:

``````#include<stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>

// Structure to define a doubly linked list node
struct node {
int num;
struct node *preptr;
struct node *nextptr;
}*stnode, *ennode;

// Function prototypes
void DlListcreation(int n);
void DlList_str();

int main() {
int n, num1, a, insPlc;
stnode = NULL;
ennode = NULL;

printf(" Input the number of nodes: ");
scanf("%d", &n);

// Function call to create a doubly linked list
DlListcreation(n);

// Function call to convert the doubly linked list to a string
DlList_str();
}

// Function to create a doubly linked list
void DlListcreation(int n) {
int i, num;
struct node *fnNode;

if (n >= 1) {
// Allocating memory for the first node
stnode = (struct node *) malloc(sizeof(struct node));
if (stnode != NULL) {
printf(" Input data for node 1 : "); // assigning data in the first node
scanf("%d", &num);
stnode->num = num;
stnode->preptr = NULL;
stnode->nextptr = NULL;
ennode = stnode;

// Loop to create subsequent nodes and link them in the list
for (i = 2; i <= n; i++) {
fnNode = (struct node *) malloc(sizeof(struct node));
if (fnNode != NULL) {
printf(" Input data for node %d : ", i);
scanf("%d", &num);
fnNode->num = num;
fnNode->preptr = ennode; // new node is linking with the previous node
fnNode->nextptr = NULL; // set next address of fnnode is NULL
ennode->nextptr = fnNode; // previous node is linking with the new node
ennode = fnNode; // assign new node as the last node
} else {
printf(" Memory can not be allocated.");
break;
}
}
} else {
printf(" Memory can not be allocated.");
}
}
}

// Function to convert the doubly linked list to a string
void DlList_str() {
struct node *current;
current = stnode;
char text_str[100] = "";

// Loop through the list and concatenate node data to a string
while (current != NULL) {
char str[10];
sprintf(str, "%d", current->num);
strcat(text_str, str);
strcat(text_str, " ");
current = current->nextptr;
}

// Display the doubly linked list in string format
printf("\nThe doubly linked list in string format: %s\n", text_str);
}
```
```

Sample Output:

``` Input the number of nodes: 4
Input data for node 1 : 10
Input data for node 2 : 11
Input data for node 3 : 12
Input data for node 4 : 13

The doubly linked list in string format: 10 11 12 13

```
