find delete specified link

Find and delete specified ‘Link’ from ‘Linked List’

This java program provides functions to search for a data item from Linked List with a specified key value, and to delete an item from Linked List with a specified key value.

Find and Delete Specified Link: Linked List Example

	//constructor 
	//initialize data and no need to initilaize the next field, since it's automatically set to null.
	public Link(int iData, double dData)

	public void displayLink()
	{

	}	
}

	}

Output

List from first to last :
{77,7.05} {55,5.05} {33,3.05} {11,1.05}  
Found link with key 55
Deleted link with key 33
List from first to last :
{77,7.05} {55,5.05} {11,1.05}
