Important Files


An Algorithm for Error Correcting Cyclic Redundance Checks
C/C++ Users Journal - June 2003 - p.6
So far as I can determine, the source code is no longer available at the Dr. Dobbs website. For a local copy, click here

Efficiently Sorting Linked Lists
Dr. Dobbs Journal - June 1999 - p. 125
The source code, as published, is at the DDJ website.

The latest version of the source code can be retrieved at this web site. I have divided the program into 4 parts: The Singly Linked List routines (which include the Sort routine) are in the file: csll_.c, the header file is in: sll_.h. The main test program is in: llsort.c A program that will create a random file of characters for testing is create.c

I also have a version of the sort using C++ templates. The comparison (comp) routine has been replaced by <. I overloaded << which will make the traverssal routine more intuitive. You can use these routines to sort a linked list of virtually any structure (so long as the structure is specified in the template argument list). Within the declaration of the user defined structure, the user will have to define the < and the << operators to make the proper comparisons and to handle the output. The main test program is llsortlt.cpp and the templated Singly List routines are in tcslll_.html.
