C++'s standard container class list is a double-linked list. It provides
bidirectional iterators, and the obvious implementation is a collection
of list nodes each of which contains a pointer to both the following and
the preceding node. Singly linked lists, however, are also a useful data
structure. Singly linked lists are the primary data structure in
functional languages like lisp and Haskell, and hand-written singly
linked lists are a common pattern for C APIs. This talk will discuss
several possible designs for an STL version of singly linked lists.

Matt Austern is the author of "Generic Programming and the STL". He's
the former chair of the C++ standardization committee's library working
group, and is a moderator of comp.std.c++. Before working at Google,
Matt was at Apple and before that at SGI. Matt received his PhD in
physics from Berkeley in 1994, and participated in the discovery of the
top quark.
