What is Dangling pointer in dfs (data file structure)?

  Shared By: Isaac Evans    Date: Dec 09    Category: C++ Programming    Views: 1708

Answer:

If a node is being pointed by pointer p and q is pointer which points to p, so now if we free the pointer p, then the memory for pointer p is also freed. So now q no longer points to desired location. So such pointer q is called dangling pointer.
