I've loaded my version of assignment 1 onto the NYLXS webserver at
Look it over and please edit and comment
A few thoughts:
First, I changed to order of the function listings because we are not
using function declarations so the order that they are defined is
essential because they call each other. Ideally, one would make a .h file.
Secondly, the given skeleton was essentially broken and I had to rewrite
all the functions. As it was, it not only didn't track the last entries
correctly near L.n == L.last, but also used an incorrect algorithm to
find is a list was full
Thirdly, I reduced the size of the array from 100 to 5 so I could debug
it and show who it works.
Fourthly, it takes some interpretation of the intent of the assignment
specifications to correctly right the code. This is all to common of a
problem. Give me the Spec! (I guess UML might be good for something).
As such, when the array is full and I'm adding from the last, then I
chose to push results forward and bump the first value. Likewise, for
InsertBegin, I push everything forward. He wrote this, actually, but I
filled in the case of what to do when the array is filled. I then give
a warning and bump the last value out of the array.
Fifth: See my makefile and do yourself a favor and copy it and use it.
BTW - GVIM is your friend.
Sixth: I let debugging code in my code. You can best run it like this
list 2> /dev/nulll
Even with that, it is quite chatty.
