Abstract Data Type Lists C

ADT in lists in C++ or sequence is an abstract data type that implements a finite ordered collection of values, where the same value may occur more than once. An instance of a list is a computer representation of the mathematical concept of a finite sequence; the (potentially) infinite analog of a list is a stream. Lists are a basic example of containers, as they contain other values. Each instance of a value in the list is usually called an item, entry, or element of the list; if the same value occurs multiple times, each occurrence is considered a distinct item. Lists are distinguished from arrays in that lists only allow sequential access, while arrays allow random access.

ADT List Operations

  1. Create an empty list
  2. Destroy a list
  3. Determine whether a list is empty
  4. Determine the number of items in a list
  5. Insert an item at a given position in the list
  6. Delete the item at a given position in the list
  7. Retrieve th item at a given position in the list

C++ Classes

Encapsulation( used to refer to one of two related but distinct notions, and sometimes to the combination) combines an ADT’s data with its operations to form an object

  1. An object is an instance of a class
  2. A class defines a new data type
  3. A class contains data members and
  4. methods (member functions)
  5. By default all members in a class are private.
  6. Encapsulation hides implementation details.

Each class definition is placed in a header file Classname.h

The implementation of a class’s methods are placed in an implementation file Classname.cpp

Constructors- Create and initialize new instances of a class. Invoked when you declare an instance of the class. Have the same name as the class. Have no return type, not even void

Destructor- Destroys an instance of an object when the object’s lifetime ends

C++ Namespaces- A mechanism for logically grouping declarations and definitions into a common

Main file ADT Lists C++

#include "lists.cpp"
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main(int argc, char** argv) {

//declare list
 List testList;

 //check if list is empty
 cout<< "List is not empty"<<endl;
 else cout<< "List is empty"<<endl;

//insert valueslists

 //insert values

 // get the size of list
 cout<< "size is: " << testList.getSize()<< endl;


 return 0;
}//end main

Program Output:

List is empty

10 has been inserted
15 has been inserted
33 has been inserted
86 has been inserted
item at position 0 is: 86
size is: 4
List contains: 86 0 0 0 10 15 0 33 0 0
