Hi I am currently in my second year studying computer science and the assignment I have been assigned to complete is one in which I am required to create a chat room server. I have been really bad at doing work and now I am in need of some help.
The first part of the assignment which I am having trouble with asks me to create a pointer in a class chatter (already been implemented) which points towards the next chatter in a list of chatters, depending on whether or not said chatter is in the 'alive' or 'dead' list of chatters (these two lists need to be distinguished to save space).
I understand that on these types of forums it is not customary to give answers out, so I would really appreciate at least some guidance on the matter if anyone is willing to help. I can also post the code which I am meant to be working with up here if that would make it easier, thanks!
