C++ tutorial-count elements of singly linkedlist

Count numbers of items in linked list

 Step 3: Count elements of the linked list

To count all elements of the linked list, we will need a loop to traverse through the linked list. We will let a pointer (i) of ListElem type to point to the pfirst then move the pointer to its next element and increase the number of item(t) one at a time by using a while loop until the end of the linked list(indicated by NULL value) is reached.

//C++ code to count the number of items in the list
int countitem()
  ListElem *i;
  int t=0;

 return t;
