However, be warned; they were designed to demonstrate the structures and are not super-optimized. You cannot copy any of the structures because none of them implements proper copy constructors. Whenever you pass a structure into a function as a parameter, make absolutely certain that you pass-by-reference or use a pointer; otherwise, it will mess up your structure. If you don’t know what this means just yet, look at the functions that use the data structures; they demonstrate how to use them correctly.

Basic Algorithm Analysis single loop on the same number of items. What would the complexity of this algorithm be? It is natural to assume that it would be O(n2 + n), but that is incorrect. Remember, when you measure the complexity of an algorithm, you really care only about how it grows as the data size increases. Eventually, the single n term will be overpowered by the much larger n2 term and become insignificant. So the correct complexity of the algorithm is actually O(n2). Also, keep in mind that dividing or multiplying by a constant has no effect on the complexity of an algorithm.
