Iterative quicksort method

By : Ahmet Emre Gürcan

help you fix your problem I'm trying to implement a hoare quicksort method that runs iterativly. Im using the Algorithm below. So right now it inputs: 10 7 8 9 1 5 and for example when i run it outputs: 5 7 8 9 1 10 it only switches 2 elements from the array. Why does it stop? Where did i go wrong? , Several things are wrong here.
code :
right[0]=a[N-1];   # <-------------- pretty sure this should just be N-1, not a[N-1]

Looking at Sorts - Quicksort Iterative?

By : user2544508

Does that help I'm looking at all different sorts. Note that this is not homework (I'm in the midst of finals) I'm just looking to be prepared if that sort of thing would pop up. I was unable to find a reliable method of doing a quicksort iteratively. Is it possible and, if so, how?
code :
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>

#define MAXELT          100
#define INFINITY        32760         // numbers in list should not exceed
                                      // this. change the value to suit your
                                      // needs
#define SMALLSIZE       10            // not less than 3
#define STACKSIZE       100           // should be ceiling(lg(MAXSIZE)+1)

int list[MAXELT+1];                   // one extra, to hold INFINITY

struct {                              // stack element.
        int a,b;
} stack[STACKSIZE];

int top=-1;                           // initialise stack

int main()                           // overhead!
    int i=-1,j,n;
    char t[10];
    void quicksort(int);

    do {
        if (i!=-1)
        printf("Enter the numbers <End by #>: ");
        if (sscanf(t,"%d",&n)<1)
    } while (1);


    printf("\nThe list obtained is ");
    for (j=0;j<i;j++)
        printf("\n %d",list[j]);

    printf("\n\nProgram over.");
    return 0;       // successful termination.

void interchange(int *x,int *y)        // swap
    int temp;


void split(int first,int last,int *splitpoint)
    int x,i,j,s,g;

    // here, atleast three elements are needed
    if (list[first]<list[(first+last)/2]) {  // find median
    else {
    if (list[last]<=list[s]) 
    else if (list[last]<=list[g])
    interchange(&list[x],&list[first]);      // swap the split-point element
                                             // with the first
    i=first+1;                               // initialise
    while (i<j) {
        do {                                 // find j 
        } while (list[j]>x);
        do {
            i++;                             // find i
        } while (list[i]<x);
        interchange(&list[i],&list[j]);      // swap
    interchange(&list[i],&list[j]);          // undo the extra swap
    interchange(&list[first],&list[j]);      // bring the split-point 
                                             // element to the first

void push(int a,int b)                        // push

void pop(int *a,int *b)                       // pop

void insertion_sort(int first,int last)
    int i,j,c;

    for (i=first;i<=last;i++) {
        while ((list[c-1]>j)&&(c>first)) {

void quicksort(int n)
    int first,last,splitpoint;

    while (top!=-1) {
        for (;;) {
            if (last-first>SMALLSIZE) {
                // find the larger sub-list
                // push the smaller list
                if (last-splitpoint<splitpoint-first) {
                else {
            else {  // sort the smaller sub-lists
                    // through insertion sort
    }                        // iterate for larger list

// End of code.

Quicksort: Iterative or Recursive

By : Deepak Chandrasekara

With these it helps In terms of (asymptotic) time complexity - they are both the same.
"Recursive is slower then iterative" - the rational behind this statement is because of the overhead of the recursive stack (saving and restoring the environment between calls).
code :
public static void recursiveQsort(int[] arr,Integer start, Integer end) { 
    if (end - start < 2) return; //stop clause
    int p = start + ((end-start)/2);
    p = partition(arr,p,start,end);
    recursiveQsort(arr, start, p);
    recursiveQsort(arr, p+1, end);


public static void iterativeQsort(int[] arr) { 
    Stack<Integer> stack = new Stack<Integer>();
    while (!stack.isEmpty()) {
        int end = stack.pop();
        int start = stack.pop();
        if (end - start < 2) continue;
        int p = start + ((end-start)/2);
        p = partition(arr,p,start,end);




private static int partition(int[] arr, int p, int start, int end) {
    int l = start;
    int h = end - 2;
    int piv = arr[p];

    while (l < h) {
        if (arr[l] < piv) {
        } else if (arr[h] >= piv) { 
        } else { 
    int idx = h;
    if (arr[h] < piv) idx++;
    return idx;
private static void swap(int[] arr, int i, int j) { 
    int temp = arr[i];
    arr[i] = arr[j];
    arr[j] = temp;

public static void main(String... args) throws Exception {
    Random r = new Random(1);
    int SIZE = 1000000;
    int N = 100;
    int[] arr = new int[SIZE];
    int[] millisRecursive = new int[N];
    int[] millisIterative = new int[N];
    for (int t = 0; t < N; t++) { 
        for (int i = 0; i < SIZE; i++) { 
            arr[i] = r.nextInt(SIZE);
        int[] tempArr = Arrays.copyOf(arr, arr.length);

        long start = System.currentTimeMillis();
        millisIterative[t] = (int)(System.currentTimeMillis()-start);

        tempArr = Arrays.copyOf(arr, arr.length);

        start = System.currentTimeMillis();
        millisRecursive[t] = (int)(System.currentTimeMillis()-start);
    int sum = 0;
    for (int x : millisRecursive) {
        sum += x;
    System.out.println("end of recursive. AVG = " + ((double)sum)/millisRecursive.length);
    sum = 0;
    for (int x : millisIterative) {
        sum += x;
    System.out.println("end of iterative. AVG = " + ((double)sum)/millisIterative.length);

How do I change iterative quicksort with fixed pivot to iterative quicksort with random pivot?

By : Fapricorn

hope this fix your issue Your partition function assumes the pivot is at the end of the partition. Consider moving your random pivot to the end of the partition first.
i.e. add
code :
swap(&arr[r], &arr[h]);

Is a Recursive-Iterative Method Better than a Purely Iterative Method to find out if a number is prime?

seems to work fine Since your program tests just one number, you're wasting time trying to avoid testing by composites. You perform a lot of computations to save one meager modulo operation.
If you were testing more than a few numbers in a row for primality, then it would make sense to pre-compute the primes up to a sqrt of the top limit of that range, and go through those primes when testing the candidates.
code :
Input: two Integers n >= m > 1

Let k = Floor(Sqrt(n)),
Let A be an array of Boolean values, indexed by Integers 2 to k, and
    B an array of Booleans indexed by Integers from m to n,
    initially all set to True.

for i = 2, 3, 4, ..., not exceeding k:
  if A[i] is True:
    for j = i^2, i^2+i, i^2+2i, ..., not greater than k:
      A[j] := False
    for j = i^2, i^2+i, i^2+2i, ..., between m and n, inclusive:
      B[j] := False

Output: all `i`s such that B[i] is True, are all the primes 
                                     between m and n, inclusive.

How to do iterative quicksort without using stack in c?

seems to work fine First of all does C have a stack class? ,
