Hello, can someone help me figure out how long a run to search for permutations of a ten character string might take if a linked list, not a tree, was used to store a set of words (about 349900 words). Operation count ?

you can't compute for a constant run time;someone correct me if i'm wrong, but i believe the searching an unordered list  has a worst case scenario of O(n) and best case scenario of O(1). while a ternary search tree would give you a worst case of O(log(n) + k) where k is the length of the string. now if you have an ordered list, that will make it way faster to search; something like O(log n)
