Binary Search using C

This example shows how Binary Search Algorithm works and I am going to implement it using C programming language. Binary search, also known as half-interval search, logarithmic search, or binary chop, is a search algorithm that finds the position of a target value within a sorted array. Binary search compares the target value to the middle element of the array. Binary search algorithm is better when an array is sorted because it makes comparison between the search key “k” and middle element of the array. Since the array is sorted,…

Sequential Search using C

This example shows how Sequential Search algorithm works. In sequential or linear search an element is searched or found in a list. Simple way to search for a key value k in an array a is to compare the values of the elements in a with k. The process starts with the first element of the array and k and comparison continues as long as either the comparison does not result in a success or the list of elements in the array are exhausted. This method of searching is known…
