1 Arrays Hanly - Chapter 7 Friedman-Koffman - Chapter 9

2 3/13/02 Program 4 questions? –revised test1 and my version of the program –program should always process at least one customer Program 6 (and HW2) may be done by two people working together

3 2 9.1 The Array Data Type Array collection of elements with a common name –Entire array is referenced through the name Array elements are of the same type — the base type –Base type can be any fundamental, library- defined, or programmer -defined type For now: arrays are static - they have a fixed number of elements

4 4 Array Elements Individual elements of the array are referenced by sub_scripting the group name –Subscripts are denoted as expressions within brackets: [ ] –The index type is integer and the index range must be 0... n -1 where n is the number of elements in the array

5 6 Array Declaration

6 7 Sample Declarations Suppose const int N = 20; const int M = 40; const int MaxStringSize = 80; const int MaxListSize = 1000 ;

7 8 Sample Declarations Then the following are all correct array declarations. int A[10]; char B[MaxStringSize]; float C[M*N]; int Values[MaxListSize]; Rational D[N-15];

8 Array Initialization An array can be initialized at the time it is declared char grades[5] = {'A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'F'}; int primes[] = {1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23} if values provided do not fill the array, remainder of elements will be 0 double x[10] = {1.5, 2.5, 3.5, 4.5, 5.5}

9 9 Subscripting Suppose int A[10]; // array of 10 ints To access an individual element we must apply a subscript to array name A –A subscript is a bracketed expression The expression in the brackets is known as the index –First element of A has index 0 A[0]

10 10 Subscripting –Second element of A has index 1, and so on A[1] –Last element has an index one less than the size of the array A[9] Incorrect indexing is a common error –be careful not to index past the end of the array

11 11 Array Elements Suppose int A[10]; // array of 10 uninitialized ints To access an individual element we must apply a subscript to array name A

12 12 Array Element Manipulation Given the following: int i = 7, j = 2, k = 4; A[0] = 1; A[i] = 5; A[j] = A[i] + 3; A[j+1] = A[i] + A[0]; A[A[j]] = 12;

13 13 Array Element Manipulation cin >> A[k]; // where the next input value is 3

14 Array Processing None of the operators are defined for an array – > arithmetic comparison To do the same thing to every element in an array, use a loop

15 14 Inputting Into An Array int A[MaxListSize]; int n = 0; int CurrentInput; while((n > CurrentInput)) { A[n] = CurrentInput; ++n; }

16 15 Displaying An Array // List A of n elements has // already been set for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) { cout << A[i] << " "; } cout << endl;

17 Partially filled arrays You don't have to use all the elements of an array –don't always know how many elements you will need –declare array big enough to handle all cases it is your job to keep track of how many elements are valid

18 3/15/01 HW 2: Planning for program 6 –you may do this in pairs –look at P6 handout for ideas –this is a planning exercise - you are not writing code P5 - start thinking about how to organize the main playing loop of a Yahtzee game

19 Cheating making copies of other students programs is NOT appropriate behavior I will be comparing all Program 4 submissions to check for copying Acknowledge anyone that you get help from in your readme

20 17 Access to Array Elements Sequential Access –Process elements in sequential order starting with the first Random Access –you can access elements in random order

21 23 9.3 Array Elements Use, +, - to test and modify array elements At times it might benefit you to pass an entire array to a function Can pass array elements to functions –actual function call swap (s[3], s[5]);

22 24 swap.cpp // FILE: Exchange.cpp // Exchanges two type float values void exchange (float& a1, float& a2) { float temp; temp = a1; a1 = a2; a2 = temp; }

23 25 Arrays as Function Arguments Arrays are always passed by reference –Passing the array address –contents can be changed Points to remember –function definition needs only [] to indicate that the actual argument is an array –You can use the reserved word const to prevent the contents of an array from being changed

24 30 9.4 Reading Part of an Array Sometimes it is difficult to know how many elements will be in an array Scores example –150 students –200 students Always allocate enough space at compile time Remember to start with index [0]

25 37 9.5 Searching and Sorting Arrays Look at 2 common array problems –Searching –Sorting How do we go about finding the smallest number in an array? –Assume 1st is smallest and save its position –Look for one smaller –If you locate one smaller save its position

26 43 Linear Search The idea of a linear search is to walk through the entire until a target value is located If the target is not located some type of indicator needs to be returned

27 46 Sorting in Ascending Order Selection Sort Idea of the selection sort is to locate the smallest value in the array Then switch positions of this value and that in position [0] We then increment the index and look again for the next smallest value and swap Continue until sorted

28 Section 1 3/18/02

29 character arrays arrays can have any base type char arrays are useful for storing text C used a char array for strings –use null character to designate the end of the string C++ has a string class

30 literal strings A literal string constant is a sequence of zero or more characters enclosed in double quotes "Are you aware?\n" Individual characters of string are stored in consecutive memory locations The null character ('\0') is appended to strings so that the compiler knows where in memory strings ends

31 C-style strings array of char with a null character as the last element –null character has ASCII code 0 –'\0' 'w''o''r''d''\0' operators = and == not defined for C-style strings

32 Declaring and initializing Declaring uninitialized char cstr[15]; Declaration with initialization char letters[] = "abcde"; char grades[] = {'A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'F', '\0'} char notString[] = {'A', 'B', 'C', 'D',} In first case above, the null character is appended for you

33 string.h int strlen( char[])number of characters in array; doesn't count '\0' void strcpy( char[], char[]) copy one C-style string to another int strcmp( char[] char[])compare two C-style strings void strcat( char[], char[])append one C-style string to another

34 length vs number of elements char word = "word"; word has 5 elements BUT strlen( word) = 4

35 assigning values NOT ALLOWED char a[] = "stuff", b[]; b = a; How do you do this? strcpy( b, a); Now b also contains "stuff"

36 comparing C-style strings == not defined for strings –use strcmp strcmp( a, b) returns 0 if the strings are the same returns a number >0 if a comes after b lexicographically returns a number < 0 if a comes before b

37 reading strings char a[10]; cin >> a; whitespace delimited to read multiple words, use getln cin.getline( a, 10); the number is the number of elements in the array

38 concatenating C-style strings char str1[]="cat", str2[]="top"; strcat(str2, str1); after this code has executed, str2 will contain "topcat"

39 42 C++ string class library is string (no.h) declaration and initialization

40 string Class #include Various operations on strings are defined –assignment with = –comparison with == –concatenation with +, += –length() function returns the string length –c_str() returns a C-style string as const

41 16 Remember Arrays are always passed by reference Can use const if array elements are not to be modified You do not need to include the array size within the brackets when defining an array parameter Initialize array with 0 or some other known value

42 65 9.9 Common Programming Errors Watch non int subscripts (ASCII value) Enumerated types can be used Out of range errors –C++ no range error checking Lack of subscript to gain access Subscript reference to non-array variable Type mixing when using with functions Initialization of arrays

43 66 Common Programming Errors No prefix to reference a struct member Incorrect prefix reference to a struct member Missing ; following definition of struct Initialization of struct members
