A comment about language choice on Data Structures: You can program in any language as long as your code clearly displays the algorithm operating on a data structure. This will typically be C, C++, or Java. We do not recommend scripting languages such as Perl, unless they are used in a fashion that clearly illustrates the algorithm (and not something cryptic, which is very common in Perl).

But be careful of one thing. If you use special, language specific, structures like Arraylist, you could get into trouble. Don't use a structure that loses "linked list". Don't start using some array, when the problem calls for "linked list". That is, if the problem says "linked", then there better be a ".next" or "->next" and not L[i] or L.elementAt(i). There's a crucial difference between an array and a list. No Java Vectors.
