What is a Data Structure?

What is a Data Structure???

  • A DS Represents a finite collection of data.
    • Size of the collection is known before execution i.e static DS & is fixed e.g-Arrays
    • Size of the collection will be known during execution i.e variable or dynamic DS e.g-Linked List
  • It demonstrates relationship among the members- fits collection
  • It has methods to process members. i.e addition, deletion- fits collection

The entire triplet is called a Data Structure.

Example of Data Structures are Stack, Queue, Linked List, Trees, Arrays, Files etc.

Simple Definition for anyone to understand. I suggest every one to explore this topic more and more to become a good programmer.
