i'm writng a code for image compression in which i have to read the data from file and store it in a matrix form. Second step involves sorting of data....data can be sort but i've to store their positions not the values in an array (acc. to the sorted values).
Suppose 64(3rd row & 5th col) is the max value in the matrix...then i've to store 3,5 position of 64 . Now problem is how do i store that. i think it's pretty simple but i'm not bale to get it.
This is done so that value's original location is not lost...since it's an image & after whatever operation we need to send that vlue back to its original position so as to get the original image back.
What kind of structure do i need to use.
Please if someone cud help me solving this prob.
thanks in advance
