August 24, 2016
- Continued work on Problem Set 5
- Walked through speller.c on paper. See scratch notes here.
- Attempted to understand the manual for getrusage.
- Watched part of the Problem Set 5 Walkthrough video
August 25, 2016 Part 1
- I want to get a better grasp on pointers, structs and linked lists before I start pset 5 since I haven’t actually coded any of it yet. It’s just all theory in videos. I want to try in a simpler setting first so I will go through a few tutorials.
- Lesson 15: Singly linked lists in C
- Worked on HackerRank Day 15: Linked Lists problem: https://www.hackerrank.com/challenges/30-linked-list
- It’s odd since it doesn’t just append to the front of the list, rather the end which seems more complicated.
