In my previous post Data Structure 101 we were able to understand what data-structure is and algorithm
On that note, we would be looking at the types of data-structure.
There are two main types of data structures, These includes;
Primitive Data Structure - They store the data of only one type.
Examples of primitive data structure are integer, character, float.
Non-Primitive Data Structure - is a type of data structure that can store the data of more than one type. Non primitive data structure are classified into two i.e., linear and non-linear data structure
LINEAR DATA STRUCTURE
Elements are stored in a sequential order. Examples; Arrays, Queues, Stacks and Linked Lists.
NON-LINEAR DATA STRUCTURE
Elements are not stored in sequential order. Examples; trees and graphs are non-linear data structures.
