Python Example – Write a Python program to find the size of a singly linked list

(Python Example for Citizen Data Scientist & Business Analyst)


Write a Python program to find the size of a singly linked list.


Sample Solution:

Python Code:

class Node:
    def __init__(self, data=None): = data = None
class singly_linked_list:
    def __init__(self):
        self.tail = None
        self.head = None
        self.count = 0
    def append_item(self, data):
        node = Node(data)
        if self.head:
   = node
            self.head = node
            self.tail = node
            self.head = node
        self.count += 1
    def iterate_item(self):
        current_item = self.tail
        while current_item:
            val =
            current_item =
            yield val

items = singly_linked_list()

print("Original list:")
for val in items.iterate_item():

print("nSize of the list:",items.count)

Sample Output:

Original list:

Size of the list: 5
