1 CSE 143 Lecture 3 ArrayIntList slides created by Ethan Apter and Marty Stepp http://www.cs.washington.edu/143/ 2 remove ArrayIntList has an add , so it should also have a remove remove will take an index as a parameter • But how do we remove from ArrayIntList ? – Is it enough to just set the value to 0 or -1? • No! 0 and -1 can represent real, valid data • Instead we need to: – shift all remaining valid data, so there is no “hole” in our data – decrement size, so there’s one less piece of data

2 3 Implementing remove • How can we remove an element from the list? – list.remove( 2 ); // delete 9 from index 2 index 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 value 3 8 9 7 5 12 0 0 0 0 size 6 3 8 7 5 12 0 0 0 0 0 5 4 Implementing remove , cont. • Again, we need to shift elements in the array – this time, it's a left-shift – in what order should we process the elements? – what indexes should we process? – list.remove( 2 ); // delete 9 from index 2 3 8 9 7 5 12 0 0 0 0 6 3 8 7 5 12 12 0 0 0 0 5
3 5 remove remove code: public void remove(int index) { for (int i = index; i < size – 1; i++) { elementData[i] = elementData[i + 1]; } size--; } • We didn’t “reset” any value to 0. Why not? Be careful with loop boundaries! 6 remove • If we made an ArrayIntList and add ed the values 6, 43, and 97, it would have the following state: 0 1 2 3 4 98 99 elementData: 6 43 97 0 0 . .. 0 0 size: 3 • After a call of remove(0) it has this state: 0 1 2 3 4 98 99 elementData: 43 97 97 0 0 . .. 0 0 size: 2 • We don’t care what values are in the invalid data valid valid invalid invalid

4 7 Is ArrayIntList Finished? • What we’ve done so far: – Made an ArrayIntList class – Gave it enough variables to maintain its state – Gave it three methods: add , remove , and toString • Sure we could add more methods. .. • But what if our client is malicious?
