Yes, that's what I was trying to convey. Sorry if it was too opaque.
Most general purpose lists I've seen use a (void*) to the data being
held, or else use templates to define them. Less general purpose have
the type of data embeded in the list definition.

One thing I like about STL is that it makes the interface to all
lists in different programs the same. You don't have to figure out
a different list package for each program you have to maintain.
