    Re: What is data structure?

    Hello . .

    Data Structure is the tree structure like how a data can be organized !!

    (or)

    In C ; we have Data Structure's too like int , float , char etc !!

    The way how you arrange the data comes under this one and the data might be related to one other too . .

    The Data structures come into Data Base Management Systems (D.B.M.S)

    D.B.M.S is nothing but database of data ; how you manage them, how you add data, how you delete data, how you find and retrieve data . .

    Relational D.B.M.S is the one where data is linked over one to one ; one to many or many to one . .




    The Thing What happens is that you cannot represent the data in theory manner always it becomes so lengthy ..

    To understand the data the data is structured in an orderly format ; which helps the end user to understand it easily . .

    Good Luck . . .

    Re: What is data structure?

    A data structure is a way of organizing data that considers not only the items stored, but also their relationship to each other. Advance knowledge about the relationship between data items allows designing of efficient algorithms for the manipulation of data.

    *The word Data structure is used in the programming languages like C and C++ languages in the computer science stream these are very useful in the construction of a program

    Data structure...?

    -->It is explained as the way of organizing data or element in a systematic manner in a computer memory .The systematic manner include like:-

    *Arrays

    *linked list

    *Tree structure.

    Different types of data structures:-


    -->linear data structure

    -->Dynamic data structure

    -->Tree data structure


    **It is also explained as a particular way of storing and organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently

    **These data structures are suited to different kinds of applications, and some are highly specialized to specific tasks.


    Different types of Data types

    ==>Primitive types


    Boolean (for boolean values True/False)

    Char (for character values)

    Float (for storing real number values)

    Double (a larger size of type float)

    int (for integral or fixed-precision values)

    Enumerated type


    ==>Composite types

    Array

    Record (also called tuple or struct)

    Union

    Tagged union (also called a variant, variant record, discriminated union, or disjoint union)

    Plain old data structure


    ==>Abstract data types


    Container

    Map/Associative array/Dictionary

    Multimap

    List

    Set

    Multiset

    Priority queue

    Queue

    Deque

    Stack

    String

    Tree

    Graph

    *These data types are useful in the many interviews mainly in the software organizations the questions will be from the data structures.So be well noted about the data structures

    all the best..!!

    Re: What is data structure?

    This is a term related to computer science .Data structure is defined as a phenomenon in which datas are stored and organised in computer's memory in an efficient way.it is used in every program and software system.it is an organisation of mathematical and logical collection of data. it helps in managing huge amounts of datas efficiently.data sttructures are implemented by writing a set of procedures known as programs. it is an actual implementation of a particular abstract data type.examples of data structures are linked lists ,queue,stack,binary tree ,hash table, array.

    Re: What is data structure?

    Hello dude!

    A Data structure is a specialized format for storing and organizing data.General data structure types include the array,the file,the record,the table,the tree and so on.Any data structure is designed to organize data to suit a specific purpose so that it can be accessed and worked with in appropiate ways.In Computer programming,a data structure may be selected or designed to store data for the purpose of working on it with various algorithms.

    HOPE THE INFORMATION HELPED YOU AND ALL THE BEST.

    Re: What is data structure?

    Friend,

    Data structures are ways to organize data (information).

    Examples:-
    Simple Variables - Primitive types
    Objects - collection of data items of various types
    Arrays - collection of data items of the same type,stored contiguously
    Linked Lists - sequence of data items, each one points to the next one


    Different kinds of data structures are suited to different kinds of applications, and some are highly specialized to specific tasks.
    In computer science, a data structure is a particular way of storing and organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently.
    Data structures provide a means to manage huge amounts of data efficiently, such as large databases and internet indexing services.
    A data structure is a group of data elements grouped together under one name. These data elements, known as members, can have different types and different lengths.
    Data Structure is Mainly Used in Java and C Programming.
    Data Structure improve our quality of life and even save lives on a regular basis. Many multi-million and several multi-billion dollar companies have been built around data structures.


    Mainly Data Structures is Three Types :

    Linear Data Structure
    Dynamic Data Structure
    Algorithmic Data Structure





    Best of Luck...........

    Data structures

    A data structure is a group of data elements grouped together under one name. These data elements, known as members, can have different types and different lengths. Data structures are declared in C++ using the following syntax:

    struct structure_name {
    member_type1 member_name1;
    member_type2 member_name2;
    member_type3 member_name3;
    .
    .
    } object_names;

    where structure_name is a name for the structure type, object_name can be a set of valid identifiers for objects that have the type of this structure. Within braces { } there is a list with the data members, each one is specified with a type and a valid identifier as its name.

    The first thing we have to know is that a data structure creates a new type: Once a data structure is declared, a new type with the identifier specified as structure_name is created and can be used in the rest of the program as if it was any other type. For example:

    struct product {
    int weight;
    float price;
    } ;

    product apple;
    product banana, melon;

    Re: What is data structure?

    Hello Friend..

    Data Structures:
    Data Structures are nothing but the way of arranging and the organizing the data in the Computer so that the data can be retried efficiently with out any loss of the data and there are many Data Structures which are implemented for storing and the organizing the Data in the Computer or the memory.

    There are many algorithms which are developed for the storing and retrieval of the data but the use of the Data Structures makes work easier and efficient.
    There are many data structures which are designed and the B-Tress are one of the data structures which are used for the efficient for the Data basses.And also the Data structures are mainly used for the large Data bases and the Internet Indexing services.
    Many algorithms and the many programming languages also use the Data structures for the implementation of the Data bases.

    There are many Data Structures which are included for the implementation of these Data Structures and some of the Data Structures which are used are...
    *Linear Data Structures-
    >>Arrays
    >>Lists
    *Trees
    These tress are used for the organizing the data in different ways for the effcient use of the data ans some of the tress are
    >>Binary Tress
    >>B-tress
    >>AVL Trees
    >>Heap Trees
    >>Multi Way tress
    >>Application specific Tress
    >>Space Trees
    *Graphs
    These are the cyclic data Structures which forms the cycles and organize the data in the form of Vertices and the Nodes.
    *Hashing
    This is also one of the type of the Data Structure which is used for the Data retrieval in an efficient way of using the Hash tables,which uses the hash key.
    *Data Types
    These data types are used for the data structures for organizing the data and some of them are
    >>Primitive types
    >>Composite Types
    >>Abstract Data types
    These are the different techniques which are used in the Data structures






    These are some of the examples for different types of data Structures.

    Re: What is data structure?

    Hello,

    Generally Data structure is way to organize information,

    In computer Science ,Data Structure is a particular way of storing and organizing Data or information in a computer so that it can be used efficiently .

    Data structure helps in managing large amount of Data efficiently Typically Algorithms go with the Data structures to manipulate the data ,

    Rather Thames algorithms design and programming languages emphasise data structures, Storing and Retrieving can be carried out on data stored in both main memory and secondary memory.

    Data structures are generally based on the ability of computer to fetch and store data at any place in its memory.

    Thank you.
