COP 3530 Assignment 5 Due: 7 th Oct 2008 In this problem you will solve the “Rat in a maze problem” (Lecture 12), using Stacks and Queues. The maze is given as a 2D array, where '0's are squares the rat can move to; '1's represent the squares where the rat cannot move to. The coordinates of the square at the top left corner are (0,0). The coordinates of the square at the bottom right corner are (14,12). The positive direction of x axis is to the right, and the positive direction of y axis is down. (0,0) 0 00100000010000 000100100000000 000000011111111 000111001001000 000001100100100 110001100100000 011001100100000 001001100100000 011001000000000 001000111111111 001010000000000 001010001000000 00001001000000 0 (14,12) You have to implement three methods: searchStack(int fromX,int fromY,int toX,int toY) , searchQueue(int fromX,int fromY,int toX,int toY) , and searchStackSmart(int fromX,int fromY,int toX,int toY) , which find a path from (fromX,fromY) to (toX,toY) , simulating the actions of a rat using the following strategies: searchStack: A rat that always attempts to move in a specific order: right, down, left, up. This method should be implemented using a stack. searchQueue: On a given square, the rat reproduces, and up to four rats take one step away from the current square, each rat in a different direction. Each of these rats will choose one direction: right, down, left and up. This method should be implemented using a queue.
