# Program to find size of Doubly Linked List

Given a doubly linked list, the task is to find the size of that doubly linked list. For example, size of below linked list is 4. ## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

A doubly linked list is a linked data structure that consists of a set of sequentially linked records called nodes. Each node contains two fields, called links, that are references to the previous and to the next node in the sequence of nodes.
Traversal of a doubly linked list can be in either direction. In fact, the direction of traversal can change many times, if desired.

For example the function should return 3 for the above doubly linked list.

## Algorithm :

1) Initialize size to 0.
2) Initialize a node pointer, temp = head.
3) Do following while temp is not NULL
……a) temp = temp -> next
……b) size++;
4) Return size.
