Could you (or somebody else) decode the term "avl", it's an abbreviation for something. I know what an adjacency matrix is but not this tree. A reference book would also be helpful.

Thank you for the URL. For anyone else : AvL trees are a binary tree which is height balanced, has similar properties to B-Trees and was discovered by two Russians in 1962. An adjaceny matrix is a square matrix of Booleans, the columns are rows represent nodes and an entry is true if there is a path between them. Usually (not) used for representing graphs, since adjaceny lists use less space.
   I presume that the question pre-supposes that the matrix represents such a tree (or better a graph which looks like such a tree), the create function takes the matrix and produces a tree, the insert and delete functions operate on the tree. But before one starts writing code I need a couple of questions answered :-

   1) Does adjacency matrix also contain the leaf nodes?
   2) Are we given the root node as a parameter with the matrix?

the adjaceny matrix contains all the information about the tree and the leaves. so i guess it does.

the root node is given in the matrix as the first point such as 1,1 this will be the root for all trees that are created.

thankX for all the help..

pacco,

P.S.  Let me know if there is any thing else that you need..

Scrapdog: pacco paid 200 first grade cheeses for the unit. I know you're short of money are you also short of bones? You could post a question asking pacco for a copy. That would be quite fair. You could also post a new teaser in the lounge. I've got to know Northeren Illinois and Indiana quite well, you know. But not for the 6 cheeses. That's a bit small.
