A simple linked list would be [ 'a' [ 'b' [ 'c', undef]]]. This is more clear if you look at it like this:
$c = ['c', undef]; $b = ['b', undef]; $a = ['a', undef]; $a->[1] = $b; $b->[1] = $c;
This is the same as the hash version above, but using arrays. You would travers this list like this:
my $current = $a; while (defined $current) { my $value = $current->[0]; ... $current = $current->{1]; }
This is no different than the hash version above, but should be a bit more efficient.

The main point is that a linked list is made up of elements that contain data and a pointer to the next element. In the case of a double linked list 2 pointers -- one to the previous element and one to the next element.
