    Default Ordered Linked List

    Hi,

    Im trying to read items from a textfile and turn them into objects and then store them in to a linked list but it must be in order by the description of the object. So how would i go about doing this, i know i need to add the first item, then compare the next item with the first and the third with the first two and so on but not sure exactly how to do it.

    Thanks.

    In your own words, there is a very rough outline of what is to happen. Break each of those down into finer steps.
    For example, your first part, adding the first item, what is required?
    Well for one you would have to be able to take input. (probably more steps involved for that)
    Then you need a place to store the input.
    etc etc

    Refine each step in your outline until it starts looking like code.
