What is the difference between one Algorithm and one Implementation
Hello everyone ! I am thinking about the general concept of one ALgorithm.
Does exist real separation between algorithm and code in C (which is an implementation of algorithm)???
We can call one program as algorithm? Or only as "Implementation in C of C algorithm"
For Instance , We assume that we have the simple algorithm (comparison of 2 integers) :
Figure A (Algorithm in Pseudo-Code):
if a is higher from b
if a is less from b
Figure B ( Implementation in C ) :
Now... We can call A as "basic algorithm" and B as "implementation in C of this algorithm" or also we can call B as algorithm in C? or (both of them? Implementation and algorithm????)
thank you in advance :)
