GSoC: Linked List || Blog post by Chetan Karwa || #1

Greetings Everyone!
I am Chetan Karwa, working on the GSoC project on implementing Linked List in stdlib of Fortran-lang.
This post marks the start of my GSoC Project. (I know I am a little late)
I would like to keep everyone updated about my progress on the project with a weekly report.
This project would be in its best shape with community’s feedback and ideas.
I had already implemented a basic linked list (link).

The tasks that I have in my mind for this week are:

  • Knowing what are the most common APIs present in other language’s standard library.
  • Making a homogenous generic linked list.
  • Run an experimental project using the homogenous generic linked list whose results will give us a basic idea of execution time taken to make and traverse a list with 100 nodes to 1000000 nodes.
