I have a student who is majoring in math and computer sci., and needs to do his work on the computer, rather than by hand.
He needs to be able to make "Linked Lists" in computer science, which use some unusual symbols. I've gone thru Inspiration and MathType, as well as Word symbols, but cannot find them- here is the Wikipedia example- boxes with lines in them, essentially.

"In computer science<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_science>, a linked list is a data structure<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_structure> consisting of a group of nodes<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Node_%28computer_science%29> which together represent a sequence. Under the simplest form, each node is composed of a datum and a reference<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reference_%28computer_science%29> (in other words, a link) to the next node in the sequence; more complex variants add additional links. This structure allows for efficient insertion or removal of elements from any position in the sequence.
A linked list whose nodes contain two fields: an integer value and a link to the next node. The last node is linked to a terminator used to signify the end of the list.

Is anyone aware of how to insert these, or software to make this process easier?
