I have an assignment due soon, is there any one could help me change it looks difference?

this is a copy of work from my friend, i really don't know muuch about coding, it dues in few hours, could anyone help me change it in a different manner??

this assignemnt is about Prim's algorithm, and find the minimum span tree problem, it requires to use an adjacency list to store the values, and out put will be the maximum value of the vertex.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include "list.h"

node_ptr create_list()
    node_ptr header_node = (node_ptr)malloc(sizeof(struct node));
    header_node->to_vertex = -1;
    header_node->weight = -1;
    header_node->next = NULL;
    return header_node;

void destroy_list(node_ptr header_node)
    node_ptr current = header_node; /* Dynamically allocated memory to header_node node */
    node_ptr temp;

        temp = current;
        current = current->next;
        free(temp);/* Free the dynamically allocated memory */


void insert_at_front(node_ptr header_node, int w, int to_vertec)
    node_ptr new_node = (node_ptr)malloc(sizeof(struct node));/* Dynamically allocated memory to new_node */
    new_node->to_vertex = to_vertec;
    new_node->weight = w;
    new_node->next = header_node->next;
    header_node->next = new_node;

span_ptr create_span_list()
    span_ptr span_header = (span_ptr)malloc(sizeof(struct span_tree));
    span_header->total_weight = -1;
    span_header->next = NULL;
    return span_header;

void destroy_span_list(span_ptr min)/* Function to destroy the span_list */
    span_ptr current = min;
    span_ptr temp;

    while(current){ /*while it's not the end,keep going*/
        temp = current;

Um, question...does your friend have or did he have this same teacher? Otherwise, it's not likely anyone is going to notice the cheating. And if you don't know much about coding, why are you in a class that seems to require such complex mathematically-related programming? Just curious.

I usually give a lot of constructive criticism
but this is just 2 much on 2 short time.
And honestly, I don´t think annyone would code such a thing for you because you want it.

it's you loosers being unable to
apprecitate it because of your
lack of skills!"
