Just curious, but without my references im not really sure but what kind of heap is that? Fibonnacci?

Assuming you are referring to the EoPwP heap that educated_foo points to, then (as stated by educated_foo, who refers to me in the plural :-) it is strictly a simple, array-based implementation of a binary heap. It isn't documented except as it is built in the book.

A main difference between this and the Heap model is that this one contains the comparison routines internally and works on the model of selecting a comparison method on heap creation and supplying a suitable key and satellite data for each inserted element (it is easy to use any objects for which you can supply a key) --- to use objects with the Heap version you need all of your objects to supply their own cmp() method for comparing themselves with any other object type in the heap. The latter is more flexible because the comparison routines may be arbitrarily complex, but does require that all your objects either inherit or supply their own common comparison method.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
