OK, in vanilla C (no +''s included), how can you define a struct that contains pointers to an object of the same type you are defining? Example: In C++, this would work: struct foo; struct foo { int fooInt; foo* fooPointer; }; but it doesn''t in C. Can someone explain how you''d write that in C? Thnx in advnce. "You TK''ed my chicken!"

The problem is that "struct foo" is defined as soon as the definition begins, but "foo" isn''t.

struct foo {
int fooInt;
struct foo *fooPointer;
};

The ''struct'' IS needed in C.
