Hi Professor, I am trying to store my data in the trove file, Which is a combination of some struct looks similar to this (Not the same in my work, just for demo) typedef HASH_FILE *filelist; typedef struct filelist { char *string; HASH_WORD *keys; struct filelist *next; } FILELIST; typedef HASH_WORD *wordlist; typedef struct wordlist { char *string; struct wordlist *next; } as you can see, HASH_FILE is a hash table to store all the file's info, and HASH_WORD is to stores the "words" in that file. but you can also tell if I want to store this into the trove file, there are a loooot of pointers (or I should say they are practically all pointers) and I'm stuck on how to store pointers, not to mention how to store so many pointers inside another pointer. I tried to google this question, but it is not much help. Can you give me some hints on how to achieve it or is there any article that will help? Or I should give up on this and just stick with text file r/w instead?
