1 The ADT List • No such thing exists in C++ • Metaphor: A shopping list • Define Operations • Implement the ADT 2 Create(L) This creates a new empty list “L”. Always write a create function, even if it seems unnecessary. The C++ function Create(L) is the constructor for the class listClass. So, to create a list L, instantiate it as a variable of type listClass. listClass L; // creates a list L 3 Length(L) Tells us how many elements there are in the list L. Always write a function (like this) that permits you to find out whether the data type is “empty”, or, in some cases, “full”. The C++ function call is: x = L.Length( ); 4 Insert(L, i, newitem) This inserts the new item “newitem” at position “i” into “L”. You always need at least one function that puts something INTO an abstract data type. Sometimes you have several such functions. The C++ function call is: L.Insert(i, newitem); 5 We need to specify more about the behavior of Insert. What if we are trying to insert

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
