Join Barron Stone for an in-depth discussion in this video Queues, part of Programming Foundations: Real-World Examples.
- Queues and stacks are two data structures…which enable you to store and retrieve objects…based on the order that they're put into the queue or stack.…Queues operate on a principle called…first in, first out, or FIFO.…The first item to be stored in a queue…will be the first item that's removed.…That means when you retrieve an item…from a queue, you'll always get the item…that's been in queue the longest.…A stack operates on a related principle called LIFO,…which stands for last in, first out.…That means the item which was most recently…placed onto the stack will be the…next one that's removed.…
Queues and stacks are useful in different situations.…Hey, do you mind helping me put away some groceries?…- Sure, no problem.…- Cool, I'll make trips out to the car…and bring them in the house,…and if you can stay here and put them away,…that'll work great.…- Sounds good.…- These grocery bags are objects…that I'm placing into a queue.…I'll place the first bag closest to Olivia.…The next bag goes after that one,…and so on down the line.…
