    Copyrights and patents cannot be made a criminal matter since it's a grey area. No document that hasn't been passed by the parliament may be used as a law in a criminal case. Therefore a software...

    You cannot assume the data to be sorted unless it is explicitly said so. In fact you can't assume anything about input data that is not given in the text. I personally have never seen a programming...

    Obviously I was talking about a hypothetical task. In this case the restriction is O(n) time, in which the unsorted array must be processed. The O(n) restriction starts when you receive input and...
