I think I get it, the question is, what's the difference with the binary code on this site:

Code:

void btree::insert(int key, node *leaf)
{
if(key< leaf->key_value)
{
if(leaf->left!=NULL)
insert(key, leaf->left);
else
{
leaf->left=new node;
leaf->left->key_value=key;
leaf->left->left=NULL; //Sets the left child of the child node to null
leaf->left->right=NULL; //Sets the right child of the child node to null
}
}
else if(key>=leaf->key_value)
{
if(leaf->right!=NULL)
insert(key, leaf->right);
else
{
leaf->right=new node;
leaf->right->key_value=key;
leaf->right->left=NULL; //Sets the left child of the child node to null
leaf->right->right=NULL; //Sets the right child of the child node to null
}
}
}
void btree::insert(int key)
{
if(root!=NULL)
insert(key, root);
else
{
root=new node;
root->key_value=key;
root->left=NULL;
root->right=NULL;
}
}

isn't it doing the same thing there?
