Algorithm::Searching - Provide Sequential Search & Binary Search methods.
my @list=(1, "hello", 123, "abc");
#it will return index of the key if found, else -1
my $index=SequentialSearch(\@list, $key);
QuickSort(\@list); #for binary search array must be sorted
#it will return index of key if found, else -1
my $return=BinarySearch(\@list, $key);
In this module, there are two very general searching Algorithms(Sequential Search & Binary Search) written for Perl.
The subroutine performs sequential search on the list which may contain number or/and characters. In return gives index of the item searching for if found, else -1.
my $index=SequentialSearch(\@array, $key);
The subroutine performs the Binary search method on the list which may contain number or/and characters. In return it gives index of key if found, else -1.
my $return=BinarySearch(\@array, $key);
