/**
 * SECTION:linked_lists_double
 * @title: Doubly-Linked Lists
 * @short_description: linked lists that can be iterated over in both directions
 *
 * The #GList structure and its associated functions provide a standard
 * doubly-linked list data structure.
 *
 * Each element in the list contains a piece of data, together with
 * pointers which link to the previous and next elements in the list.
 * Using these pointers it is possible to move through the list in both
 * directions (unlike the singly-linked [GSList][glib-Singly-Linked-Lists],
 * which only allows movement through the list in the forward direction).
 *
 * The double linked list does not keep track of the number of items 
 * and does not keep track of both the start and end of the list. If
 * you want fast access to both the start and the end of the list, 
 * and/or the number of items in the list, use a
 * [GQueue][glib-Double-ended-Queues] instead.
 *
 * The data contained in each element can be either integer values, by
 * using one of the [Type Conversion Macros][glib-Type-Conversion-Macros],
 * or simply pointers to any type of data.
 *
 * List elements are allocated from the [slice allocator][glib-Memory-Slices],
 * which is more efficient than allocating elements individually.
 *
 * Note that most of the #GList functions expect to be passed a pointer
 * to the first element in the list. The functions which insert
 * elements return the new start of the list, which may have changed.
 *
 * There is no function to create a #GList. %NULL is considered to be
 * a valid, empty list so you simply set a #GList* to %NULL to initialize
 * it.
 *
 * To add elements, use g_list_append(), g_list_prepend(),
 * g_list_insert() and g_list_insert_sorted().
 *
 * To visit all elements in the list, use a loop over the list:
 * |[<!-- language="C" -->
 * GList *l;
 * for (l = list; l != NULL; l = l->next)
 *   {
 *     // do something with l->data
 *   }
 * ]|
 *
 * To call a function for each element in the list, use g_list_foreach().
 *
 * To loop over the list and modify it (e.g. remove a certain element)
 * a while loop is more appropriate, for example:
 * |[<!-- language="C" -->
 * GList *l = list;
 * while (l != NULL)
 *   {
 *     GList *next = l->next;
 *     if (should_be_removed (l))
 *       {
 *         // possibly free l->data
 *         list = g_list_delete_link (list, l);
 *       }
 *     l = next;
 *   }
 * ]|
 *
 * To remove elements, use g_list_remove().
 *
 * To navigate in a list, use g_list_first(), g_list_last(),
 * g_list_next(), g_list_previous().
 *
 * To find elements in the list use g_list_nth(), g_list_nth_data(),
 * g_list_find() and g_list_find_custom().
 *
 * To find the index of an element use g_list_position() and
 * g_list_index().
 *
 * To free the entire list, use g_list_free() or g_list_free_full().
