NAME

       addchain - create a chain and add it to a list

SYNOPSYS

       #include "mut.h"
       chain_list ∗addchain(pthead, ptdata)
       chain_list ∗pthead;
       void ∗ptdata;

PARAMETERS

       pthead              Pointer to a chain_list

       ptdata              Generic pointer to any kind of information

DESCRIPTION

       addchain  creates  a  new chain element and adds it to the front of the list pointed to by
       pthead, and becomes itself the list head.
       The chain_lists are mosty used to create temporary  lists  of  homogeneous  elements,  for
       binary trees, and so on.
       The  ptdata  points  to  any  kind  of  list  or  may itself be a value, if proper cast is
       performed at compilation time, and fills the DATA  field  of  the  chain  structure.   For
       details on the structure, see chain(3).

RETURN VALUE

       addchain returns a pointer to the new head of list.

EXAMPLE

       #include "mut.h"
       #include "mlo.h"
       chain_list ∗get_external_connectors(ptfig)
       lofig_list ∗ptfig;
       {
       locon_list ∗pt = ptfig->LOCON;
       chain_list ∗c = NULL; /∗ initialized for regularity ∗/
          while (pt) {
             if (pt->TYPE == EXTERNAL)
                c = addchain(c, (void ∗)pt)
             pt = pt->NEXT;
          }
          return c;
       }
