= algorithms * http://rubyforge.org/projects/algorithms/ * Documentation: http://algorithms.rubyforge.org/ == DESCRIPTION: This is a Google Summer of Code 2008 project Written by Kanwei Li, mentored by Austin Ziegler Using the right data structure or algorithm for the situation is an important aspect of programming. In computer science literature, many data structures and algorithms have been researched and extensively documented. However, there is still no standard library in Ruby implementing useful structures and algorithms like Red/Black Trees, tries, different sorting algorithms, etc. This project will create such a library with documentation on when to use a particular structure/algorithm. It will also come with a benchmark suite to compare performance in different situations. == FEATURES/PROBLEMS: Done so far: * Heaps - Containers::Heap, Containers::MaxHeap, Containers::MinHeap * Priority Queue - Containers::PriorityQueue * Stack - Containers::Stack * Queue - Containers::Queue * Deque - Containers::Deque, Containers::CDeque (C extension), Containers::RubyDeque * Red-Black Trees - Containers::RBTreeMap, Containers::CRBTreeMap (C extension), Containers::RubyRBTreeMap * Splay Trees - Containers::SplayTreeMap * Tries - Containers::Trie * Suffix Array - Containers::SuffixArray * Search algorithms - Binary Search - Algorithms::Search.binary_search - Knuth-Morris-Pratt - Algorithms::Search.kmp_search * Sort algorithms - Bubble sort - Algorithms::Sort.bubble_sort - Comb sort - Algorithms::Sort.comb_sort - Selection sort - Algorithms::Sort.selection_sort - Heapsort - Algorithms::Sort.heapsort - Insertion sort - Algorithms::Sort.insertion_sort - Shell sort - Algorithms::Sort.shell_sort - Quicksort - Algorithms::Sort.quicksort - Mergesort - Algorithms::Sort.mergesort == SYNOPSIS: require 'rubygems' require 'algorithms' max_heap = Containers::MaxHeap.new # To not have to type "Containers::" before each class, use: include Containers max_heap = MaxHeap.new == REQUIREMENTS: * Ruby 1.8 compatible Ruby, or Ruby 1.9 * C compiler for extensions (optional) == INSTALL: * sudo gem install == LICENSE: (The MIT License) Algorithms and Containers project is Copyright (c) 2008 Kanwei Li Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the 'Software'), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
