Convert a String to a Singly Linked List

  • Last Updated : 19 Jul, 2021

Given string str, the task is to convert it into a singly Linked List.
Examples: 
 

Input: str = "ABCDABC"
Output: A -> B -> C -> D -> A -> B -> C

Input: str = "GEEKS"
Output: G -> E -> E -> K -> S

 

Approach: 
 

  • Create a Linked List
  • Fetch each character of the string and insert into a new node in the Linked List
  • Print the Linked List

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ program to Convert a String
// to a Singly Linked List
 
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// Structure for a Singly Linked List
struct node {
    char data;
    node* next;
};
 
// Function to add a new node to the Linked List
node* add(char data)
{
    node* newnode = new node;
    newnode->data = data;
    newnode->next = NULL;
    return newnode;
}
 
// Function to convert the string to Linked List.
node* string_to_SLL(string text, node* head)
{
    head = add(text[0]);
    node* curr = head;
 
    // curr pointer points to the current node
    // where the insertion should take place
    for (int i = 1; i < text.size(); i++) {
        curr->next = add(text[i]);
        curr = curr->next;
    }
    return head;
}
 
// Function to print the data present in all the nodes
void print(node* head)
{
    node* curr = head;
    while (curr != NULL) {
        cout << curr->data << " -> ";
        curr = curr->next;
    }
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
 
    string text = "GEEKS";
 
    node* head = NULL;
    head = string_to_SLL(text, head);
 
    print(head);
    return 0;
}

// Function to add a new node to the Linked List
static node add(char data)
{
    node newnode = new node();
    newnode.data = data;
    newnode.next = null;
    return newnode;
}
 
// Function to convert the string
// to Linked List.
static node string_to_SLL(String text,
                            node head)
{
    head = add(text.charAt(0));
    node curr = head;
 
    // curr pointer points to the current node
    // where the insertion should take place
    for (int i = 1; i < text.length(); i++)
    {
        curr.next = add(text.charAt(i));
        curr = curr.next;
    }
    return head;
}
 
// Function to print the data
// present in all the nodes
static void print(node head)
{
    node curr = head;
    while (curr != null)
    {
        System.out.print(curr.data + " -> ");
        curr = curr.next;
    }
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    String text = "GEEKS";
 
    node head = null;
    head = string_to_SLL(text, head);
 
    print(head);
}
}
