c++ const is used very commonly. If you have ever written any code in C++, you will definitely have used
const and come across it. Needless to say, is a very useful and important feature. Using c++
const can greatly improve the robustness of your code. It is also a great way to document to other developers that the object marked as const should not be modified. On the other hand, omission of the
const keyword in places where it is needed results in more brittle, error-prone code.
In a nutshell,
const (constant) means that a property or value cannot change.
Separating code into smaller parts by placing them inside of a function (based on operation) allows developers to easily look up which part is responsible for certain features, making the debugging process much more pleasant.
The stack is a fundamental data structure used in computer science. In my opinion, it is one of the easier data structures to conceptually grasp and understand. Knowing and understanding how a stack works will not only make you a better programmer, it will also help you conceptualize problems in the future. It will become a great addition to your arsenal of data structures. The implementation details will be written in Java.
