Write a c program to implement a queue using an array and linked list

Queue is abstract data type in data structure which works as FIFO principle. FIFO means “First in First out”, i.e the element which we have inserted first will be deleted first and the element that we have inserted last will be deleted last. You can have c program to implement queue using array, using stack and using linked list. Two variables are used to implement queue, i.e “rear” and “front”. Insertion will be done at rear side and deletion will be performed at front side. Real-life example of queues are above which will use concept of queue.


Here we use circular array to implement queue which is quite efficient than tradition simple array implementation.
