Applications of Arrays in C


In c programming language, arrays are used in wide range of applications. Few of them are as follows...

Arrays are used to Store List of values

In c programming language, single dimensional arrays are used to store list of values of same datatype. In other words, single dimensional arrays are used to store a row of values. In single dimensional array data is stored in linear form.

Arrays are used to Perform Matrix Operations

We use two dimensional arrays to create matrix. We can perform various operations on matrices using two dimensional arrays.

Arrays are used to implement Search Algorithms

We use single dimensional arrays to implement search algorihtms like ...

  1. Linear Search
  2. Binary Search

Arrays are used to implement Sorting Algorithms

We use single dimensional arrays to implement sorting algorihtms like ...

  1. Insertion Sort
  2. Bubble Sort
  3. Selection Sort
  4. Quick Sort
  5. Merge Sort, etc.,

Arrays are used to implement Datastructures

We use single dimensional arrays to implement datastructures like...

  1. Stack Using Arrays
  2. Queue Using Arrays

Arrays are also used to implement CPU Scheduling Algorithms
