Divide and conquer strategy is as popular as the Taj Mahal is in India. It’s a very powerful strategy and is extensively used by elite people and political leaders to control masses in such a way that the common people don’t unite and rebel against them.

Dabbling with structures and unions

There is a lot more to structures and unions. I’ll go through what I’ve learned about them here. I’m assuming that you’re not a beginner in C language. To store or manipulate data in the computer’s memory we need to write a computer program that’ll instruct the compiler or the interpreter to allocate space for the data in the memory.

Queue is a linear data structure like stack and linked list. It follows FIFO (First-in, First-out) or LILO (Last-in, Last-out) policy. It has two main operations - enqueue (insert element; can only be inserted at the rear of a queue) and dequeue (remove element; can only be removed from the front of a queue).

Linked List is a linear data structure like stack and array. Unlike arrays, linked list elements are not stored at contiguous locations in memory. Each element (say a node) in a linked list has two parts - one is the data part that stores the input data and the other is the next part which is basically a pointer variable that stores the memory address of the next element.

Stack is a linear data structure. It follows LIFO (Last-in, First-out) policy. It has two main operations - push (insert element onto stack) and pop (delete element from stack). Stack has two exceptions - underflows (if we attempt to pop an empty stack) and overflows (trying to push an element on a full stack).

I’m a sophomore now and have data structures and algorithms courses this semester. I’ll try to explain to you what they mean. I want to stress that you need to learn them by heart to be a better programmer.

Many of us are not familiar with the term UEFI, even I have heard the term and came to know about it yesterday when I was stuck solving a problem. It was last night at around 2 am, I figured out the problem, and one from many of the solutions I mapped to try, worked!
