apqueue
i need help with a program, that implements the radix sort method.
apvector<int> QueuesToArray(apvector<apqueue<int> >&QA, int numVals)
//step two of radix sort
{
apvector<int>Array(numVals);
int t,count=0;
for(int i=0; i<QA.length(); i++){
for(int j=0; j<QA[i].length();j++){
Array[count]=QA[i].front();
QA[i].dequeue(Array[count]);
count++;
}
}
return Array;
}
i am trying to set the array = the first element in the queue, then deleting that element (QA[i].dequeue(Array[count]); ) so that the second element is now the first. the problem is that the last element in the queue does not get put into the array. how am i supposed to access all the element in an apqueue?
i also need help with this function:
int GetDigit(int number,int k)
//return kth digit of number
but i have no idea how to do this one, can i convert the int to a string?

Well, how do you want your digits numbered? If your "ones" place is digit 1, your "tens" place is digit 2, "hundreds" = 3, etc, then you could just use:
Code:
int GetDigit(int number,int k){
return (int)(number/pow(10,k1))%10;
}

thanks, the v, but does anyone know whats wrong with the QueuesToArray function?


I see one big problem  you're effectively incrementing the loop twice, because you're comparing to length(), which is decreased when you pop, and you are also incrementing your index variable. You also never use j.
Not familiar with your template class, but I think this might be your problem: Change
Code:
for(int j=0; j<QA[i].length();j++){
to
Code:
while(QA[i].length() >0){
