what do i need to implement data structuresHi,
I am a beginner (a civil engineer who needs to know programming) and i need to know what specific subjects i need to know in order to start using/programming/creating data structures. I have Deitel's book for example and i want to know if i have to read the 1200 pages before i begin. It is very important for me to start as soon as possible. all suggestions appreciated. Thanks, victor |

Re: what do i need to implement data structuresHello Victor,
I would suggest that you can go ahead and pick-up a small programming/ language specific book. Say "Thinking in C++" kinds. This will help you get started with your assignments. My experience, when I had helped a civil engg buddy of mine back in college days he didn't really require a lot of data structures but needed lot of math and huge formulas. We had written a small piece of code to handle some truss design. Most of this contained defining huge number of constants and putting them in formulae. So, this would depend on the type of application that you are targeting to develop. Lastly, this really isn't a C++ question. Try other appropriate news groups. cheers, Moh On Apr 30, 9:40 pm, "victor.hera...@gmail.com" <victor.hera...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi, > > I am a beginner (a civil engineer who needs to know programming) and > i need to know what specific subjects i need to know in order to start > using/programming/creating data structures.

I would suggest reading the book "C+ + Standard Library - Tutorial and reference". There is a lot of work put in the design of the std data structures so there is no need to reimplement that yourself. aa |

Sorry. Letīs say i need to make some finite element code. I need to use spatial data structures. So far i have read the fifth chapter of deitelīs book (classes). Do i need to learn all the characteristics of the language in order to understand a data structures ? What else, besides classes, do i need to read ? |

Finite element codes are not easy to handle in a language like C++(a careful object oriented design, followed by implementation), however there are many open source C++ finite element projects, where using one of them for the moment(until you get comfortable with the language) will be wise. BTW, for finite element programming MATLAB or OCTAVE seems perfect alternatives, especially if you have access to a legal version of the first one. Best |

C++ fits perfectly for finite element codes, specially if it involves a little bit more than the standard finite element method. I implemented a gfem myself (generalized or extended finite element method) and C++ is perfect for it since it involves some heavy computational geometry. On the octave and matlab sid? Don't even try it!!! Those are interpreted languages, so even though they are very easy to code, you cannot get a good performing application out of it. If you are going to use just the standard fem, you can try fortran since coding in C++ requires you to have some goodies found in fortran already. I have to code my own matrix and vector classes because I didn't want to use a library on my gfem code. aa |
