The SCJD assignment requires an implementation of database search
algorithm. The clarity and efficiency of this algorithm is one of
marking criteria.
My search algorithm is very primitive - it's a simple linear search through database file. Obviously, it is very inefficient.
There are many ways to improve the search speed, say , by
maintaining an index etc.
How far should we go with this?
