    Default Recursive function based on Linked list

    Hi I have a problem. I have to create a 'recursive loop' to search each node in a single linked list for the smallest value and return the node before that node.
    I was hoping to solve this problem by using the previous and current nodes.

    Now my problem is if the value appears in the middle of the list, then how can I still come back to the prev node of the smallest value after searching the whole list.

    Default Re: Linked list

    Can you write some of your code please?

    Have you tried with elementAt method and handle with integers?
