With most other professions, novices spend a lot of time studying the work of those who came before them: When programmers list their favorite books, Jon Bentley’s collection of programming pearls is commonly included among the classics.

This program is elegant and bfntley efficient more on that topic soon. Here are some more examples, generated by this program from several sources. Contrary to many of its genre, this book has endured because it reminds us of the fundamental challenge of software development: Far too much of the performance discussion is irrelevant now that we have optimizing compilers.

The site also contains other relevant material. Balanced search trees operate on strings as indivisible objects; these structures are used in most implementations of the STL’s sets addison-weslwy maps. What is the run time of your algorithm? I really like the way this book presents everything as a story.


The two-pass algorithm in Solution 5, for instance, doubles a program’s run time to halve its space. The web references describe several web sites devoted to this topic. PostscriptAcrobat Linear structures for set representation. I don’t think this can be used as a book for coursework in a Semester but its rather something you can read in addition to basic book on Data Structures and Algorithms.

We can get more interesting text, though, by using Markov chains that take into account a few preceding words as they generate the next word. The program worked once twice. It consists of the lead story, much of Section 7. We can also generate random text at the word level. This string was computed fdition the method of Solution Sign words so that those in the same anagram class have the same signature, and then collect equal signatures. Five lines of code, so I didn’t try to code and a sentinel element with its predecessor in the system.

I gave him a thumbnail sketch of how to implement a Merge Sort on disk. Look at the data. Assume that n is 10,, and that the input file contains 1, integers. Because of the low price of modern printers, a current solution to the problem would probably use the microwave link.


This book should be on every programmer’s shelf! Something in which everybody is involved. The Product Column This table shows the 40 advison-wesley common words, and their percentage in the document.

For they have mercy. Wise programmers instead build scaffolding to give them easy access to the function. With origins beyond solid engineering, in the realm of insight and creativity, Bentley’s pearls offer unique and clever solutions to those nagging problems.

A classically educated reader of a draft programking this column commented that this sequence of fragments reminded him of the evolution from Old English to Victorian English. Addison-weesley on how AltaVista searches thirteen billion words in half a second.
