Sorting and Searching Algorithms: A Cookbook
by Thomas Niemann
Number of pages: 36
This is a collection of algorithms for sorting and searching, with brief and intuitive descriptions. It is assumed that you know C, and that you are familiar with concepts such as arrays and pointers. The text presents several sorting algorithms, techniques for implementing dictionaries, structures that allow efficient search, insert, and delete operations, algorithms that sort data and implement dictionaries for very large files.

This is a book for a working programmer or anyone interested in methods of computation. The focus is on material that does not usually appear in textbooks on algorithms. We use the C++ programming language for low-level algorithms.
