Topics: Structures, Arrays, Searching and Sorting Assume there is a small mobile computer device including a hard disk and a slot for a memory card. The device shall be used to backup photos e.g. during holiday. Every time a memory card is connected all photos of the card are copied into a new folder automatically. And your task is to develop some basic controlling software to show, add, remove, search and sort the directories of photos. Step by Step Implementation 1.Define two symbolic constants, one to hold the total volume of the disk (e.g. VOLUME) and another one to hold the number of entries the files system of the device can handle (MAXFOLD). 2.Define a new structure data type named DATE to store a date consisting of year, month and day as unsigned values. 3.Define an other structure data type FOLDER to store the information of one folder of photos: ◦A title as character array of appropriate length ◦The location (event) the photos are taken as character array of appropriate length ◦The date of the day the photos are copied to the disk using the just defined data type DATE ◦The number of photos as natural number ◦And the size of the folder in MB as floating point value 4.Define the following global variables and initialise them: ◦disk as an array with MAXFOLD elements of data type FOLDER ◦folders as natural value to count the number of folders currently stored at the disk (valid elements in the array) TEST: Now you should be able to compile the code the first time without any warning or error. In the menu only "p" to print and "q" to quit will work!. 5.Now complete the functions given by their prototype: float freeSpace ();The function has to calculate the sum of the size component of all elements currently stored in the disk array. The function shall return the free space of the disk by the difference between the available total volume and the calculated sum. TEST: To test this function you only need to uncomment printing the "statusline" at the function actionmenu(). Compare the calculated value with a manual calculation of the example values given above. unsigned isBefore (DATE, DATE);The function checks if one date is before the other. There are 3 different possibilities which have to be handled. Imagine for example these 3 different combinations of values: ◦2010-01-01 : 2010-01-02 ◦2010-01-01 : 2010-02-01 ◦2010-01-01 : 2009-01-01 The function shall just return the result of the comparison. unsigned isEqual (DATE, DATE);The function checks if one date is equal to the other, all components have to be compared. The function shall just return the result of the comparison. int findByDate (DATE);As the array is should be kept in order (sorted by date) implement a binary search for a folder by its date here. You need only to adapt the binary search we used in the exercise. Use the 2 comparing functions above where appropriate. The function shall return the index of the element which was found or -1. TEST: Now you can try searching a folder by date via the "s" in the menu. Activate the corresponding part in the main function. int isSpaceLeft (FOLDER);This function compares the free space of the disk with the size of folder given with the parameter list. The function shall return 1 if there is enough space to add the folder, otherwise 0 (just the result of the comparison). void SortByDate ();This function shall implement the InsertionSort using the component date as key. Use the provided algorithm/souce code of the exercise as template. If you need a comparison between dates, use the function isBefore you have written again. void addFolder (FOLDER);The function has to check if the disk has additional capacities to add the new folder (number of folders and space left). If at least one of these conditions is false print an error message and return -1. Else there has to be added an other test to avoid 2 folder elements with the same date (use the findByDate function here. If there is no folder with the new date simply attach the new folder at the end of the array and call the sorting algorithm afterwards to keep the order in the array. TEST: Now you can try to add a folder via the "a" in the menu. Activate the corresponding part in the main function. void delDir (int);This function removes one element of the disk array. The input parameter contains the index of the element to delete. Deletion can simply be done by moving all elements at the right one to the left (overwriting the element to delete. The function may get a -1. This has to be checked first (certainly there is nothing to delete then!) Don't forget to decrement the counter of elements at the end. TEST: Now you can try to remove a folder by date via the "r" in the menu. Activate the corresponding part in the main function. unsigned findAllOfLocation(char[], FOLDER[]);This is an optional additional task: The function shall find all elements with the given value for the component location (first input parameter). The array elements which are found have to be added to the FOLDER array (second input parameter). As this parameter is an array we can use the result later in the main function. There kernel of function implements a modified linear search on the disk array (it does not stop if one element is found bat continues search until the location of all elements is checked). The finally function shall return the number of elements found in the disk array. TEST: Now you can try to add a folder by date via the "l" in the menu. Activate the corresponding part in the main function.

The purpose of this exercise is to benchmark file writing and reading speed. This exercise is divided into two parts. a). Write a file character by character such that the total file size becomes approximately >10K. After writing close the file handler, open a new stream and read the file character by character. Record both times. Execute this exercise at least 4 times b). Create a buffer capable of storing 100 characters. Now after generating the characters, first store them in the buffer. Once the buffer is filled up, store all the elements in the file. Repeat the process until the total file size becomes approximately >10K.While reading read a while line, store it in buffer and once buffer gets filled up, display the whole buffer. Repeat the exercise at least 4 times with different size of buffer (50, 100, 150 …). Records the times. c). Do an analysis of the differences in times and submit it in class.

Technical Ability Test: This was difficult. three questions to be attempted in 60 min. The Coplete Technical Paper was as follows: Write the Pseudo code for the following: 1. Wrie a function which returns the most frequent number in a list of integers. Handle the case of more than one number which meets this criterion. public static int[] GetFrequency(int[] list) 2. Counting in Lojban, an artificial language developed over the last fourty years, is easier than in most languages The numbers from zero to nine are: 0 no 1 pa 2 re 3 ci 4 vo 5 mk 6 xa 7 ze 8 bi 9 so Larger numbers are created by gluing the digit togather. For Examle 123 is pareci Write a program that reads in a lojban string(representing a no less than or equal to 1,000,000) and output it in numbers. 3. Where now stands that small knot of villages known as the Endians, a mighty forest once stood. Indeed, legand has it that you could have stoodon the edge of the wood and seen it stretch out for miles, were it not for the trees getting in the way. In one section of the forest, the trees stood in a row and were of hight from 1 to n, each hight occurring once and once only. A tree was only visible if there were no higher trees before it in the row. For example, if the heights were 324165, the only visible trees would have been those of height 3,4 & 6. Write a Program that takes an array of integers representing the heights of the trees in the row as input and prints the list of the visible trees. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// ////////////////// Ques1: Given an array containing k nos in the range 1..n and another scratch array of size n. Write an program to remove the duplicates from the array. Ques2: Given a table of the form: Product Sold on A 1/1/1980 B 1/1/1980 C 1/1/1980 A 1/1/1980 B 1/1/1980 C 2/1/1980 A 2/1/1980 There are 30 products and 10,000 records of such type. Also the month period during which sales happened is given to u. Write the program to display the result as: Product Month No. of copies A January 12 A February 15 A March 27 B January 54 B February 15 B March 10 C January 37 Ques3: Definition of priority queue was given. We have to implement the priority queue using array of pointers with the priorities given in the range 1..n. The array could be accessed using the variable top. The list corresponding to the array elements contains the items having the priority as the array index. Adding an item would require changing the value of top if it has higher priority than top. Extracting an item would require deleting the first element from the corresponding queue. The following class was given: Ques4: An array of size 5X5 is given to us. The elements from 1 to 25 are to be inserted in the array, such that starting from a particular position for an element i, the next element i+1can be inserted only at the mentioned positions (u,v), and if these all positions are occupied then it returns giving a count of how many positions have been occupied in the array: //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// ////////////////// Example: if the starting element is 1 with the given positions (1,2), then next element 2 can be placed at any one of the positions marked with *. _ _ _ _ _ 1 _ _ _ * _ _ _ _ _ _ _ * _ _ * _ _ _ _ 2.

U have to find the occurance of the characters A-Z in that string. Each character must appear in the string and must appear only once. If It that occurs in string more than one time return 1 showing it is a perfect string otherwise return 0 showing it is not a perfect string. c) Suppose u r given 10000 marks. U have to pick up top 20 top marks from them and display it on the screen. (Use the optimal sorting algorithm) d) Suppose u have a chess board. U have to insert 8 queens on the chessboard in the style that the queens don’t intersect in the diagonals, columns and rows. If they intersect return 1 else return 0.(that is no more than one queen should be present either in row or column or diagonals.) If the queen is inserted at a position in the chessboard, its count is 1.
