Array in Data Structures

  1. An array is a container of elements.
  2. Elements have a specific value and data type.
  3. Each element also has its own index, which is used to access the element.
  • Arrays are best for storing multiple values in a single variable.
  • Arrays are better at processing many values easily and quickly.
  • Sorting and searching the values is easier in arrays.
  • Arrays allow random access to elements. This makes accessing elements by position faster.
  • Arrays have better cache locality that can make a pretty big difference in performance.
  • Arrays represent multiple data items of the same type using a single name.
