Basic Algorithms on Arrays

Learning Objectives Arrays are useful for storing data in a linear structure We learn how to process data stored in an array We learn how to Read a file and store a set of Strings in an array We learn how to find a specific String in an array We learn how to find ALL Strings that starts with a prefix String And more……

We recall an Array 10206030679076658707 Characteristics - A contiguous block of memory spaces - Each one is referred to by an index - indices start from 0 and go to n-1 - Array is “homogeneous”, that is, it can only keep one type of data

Define and initialize an array 10206030679076658707 int[ ] A = new int[10]; A[0] = 10; A[1] = 20; …..

Arrays are Static 10206030679076658707 Once defined Size cannot be changed A.length = 20; /* illegal */ A Why? Because a Static Memory Block is already allocated and it cannot be changed.

So how do we change size? 10206030679076658707 double the size int[ ] B = new int[2*A.length]; for (int i=0; i { "@context": "http://schema.org", "@type": "ImageObject", "contentUrl": "http://images.slideplayer.com/13/4035753/slides/slide_6.jpg", "name": "So how do we change size.", "description": "10206030679076658707 double the size int[ ] B = new int[2*A.length]; for (int i=0; i

Operations on Arrays

Iterate through all elements in the array 10206030679076658707 for (int i =0; i < A.length; i = i + 1) { /* write your code here */ }

Iterate backwards 10206030679076658707 for (int i = A.length-1; i >= 0; i = i - 1) { /* write your code here */ }

Reverse the Array 10206030679076658707 Think of an algorithm to do this 07876576906730602010

Find the max/min in an Array 10206030679076658707 for (int i = 0; i < A.length ; i = i + 1) { }

Array of Strings aaaade6asdbbtroriohelpmeyesno for (int i = 0; i < A.length ; i = i + 1) { } Print all Strings starting with prefix
