Given a linked list, determine if it has a cycle in it

Problem statement Given a linked list, determine if it has a cycle in it. Solution For the solution we are going to use a technique known as the two-pointer technique. That is we will involve two pointers: one slow-runner and the other fast-runner. The slow-runner will move forward 1 list . . . Read more
