Given a sorted doubly linked list and a value to insert, write a function to insert the value in sorted way.
Initial doubly linked list
Doubly Linked List after insertion of 9
Let input doubly linked list is sorted in increasing order.
New node passed to the function contains data in the data part and previous and next link are set to NULL.
sortedInsert(head_ref, newNode) if (head_ref == NULL) head_ref = newNode else if head_ref->data >= newNode->data newNode->next = head_ref newNode->next->prev = newNode head_ref = newNode else Initialize current = head_ref while (current->next != NULL and current->next->data < newNode->data) current = current->next newNode->next = current->next if current->next != NULL newNode->next->prev = newNode current->next = newNode newNode->prev = current
Created Doubly Linked List 3 5 8 9 10 12
Time Complexity: O(n)
