I am writing a smart contract

contract SimpleStorage {

string storedData;

struct LinkedList {
    string head;
    string tail;
    //unit32 size;
    // mapping (string => Element) elements;

LinkedList list = LinkedList({head:"abcXXX", tail:""});

function set(string file) {
    storedData = file;

    // Element e = list.elements[file];
    // = file;
    list.head = file;

function get() constant returns (string retVal) {
    return storedData;

function getHead() constant returns (string head) {
    return list.head;


I always get getHead() method returns empty.
Could you please give me some ideas about this?

Hi guys,\
I need some help.
I am writing a smart contract like this
contract SimpleStorage {
struct Element {
    string previous;
    string next;
    string data;

string storedData;
string tail;
mapping (string => Element) elements;

function set(string x) {
    Element e = elements[x];
    storedData = x;

function getHead() constant returns (string retVal) {
    return storedData;
I don't know why the method getHead() is always empty although I run set(x) first.
Please help.
