Nope. This isn't a linked list.
char_specials is part of ch's structure.
saved is part of char_specials structure.
etc... etc... etc...

A linked list is something like this:
struct list_of_names {
  char *name;
  struct list_of_names *next;

This would mean that a variable would have two parts: The name, and the
pointer that points to the next item in the list.

There are double-linked lists, binary trees, and all sorts of other
nasties like that, but I'll leave it up to your handy (what do you mean
you don't have one handy?!) C book.
