What is traversing a linked list?

Traversing a linked list refers to the process of visiting or accessing each node in a linked list. This is often done to perform some operation on each node or to retrieve some data from the nodes. To traverse a linked list, we usually start at the head of the list and move from one node to the next until we reach the end of the list. This can be done using a loop, such as a for loop, that iterates through the nodes of the list. Alternatively, we can also use a recursive function that calls itself on the next node in the list until it reaches the end.
