In computer science, a data structure is a particular way of storing and organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently. Different kinds of data structures are suited to different kinds of applications, and some are highly specialized to specific tasks. For example, B-trees are particularly well-suited for implementation of databases, while compiler implementations usually use hash tables to look up identifiers. Data structures provide a means to manage huge amounts of data efficiently, such as large databases and internet indexing services. Usually, efficient data structures are a key to designing efficient algorithms. Some formal design methods and programming languages emphasize data structures, rather than algorithms, as the key organizing factor in software design. Storing and retrieving can be carried out on data stored in both main memory and in secondary memory. Various Data Structures are available that are needed to be employed based on the need.

The ways in which data is stored is called the structure of data. There are many kinds of functions (including hash) in which data is stored in memory. If I can recall correctly, they are: objects, arrays, sets, hashes and records. That's all I know.
I like objects. Simple to work with :-)

any idea of Linked LIst?????
its there in the link above
A little, like how they have an integer and then the thing you have to store.
Dang, I have to learn to program T_T
Discuss the features of data structures used in computer programming.. @AravindG
did you check the links provided ?
yeah bt wht r d features??? both seems similar to me..
well I am not sure of this one ...
what did you mean both ?
its concept and features.... guesssing nt much difference is there between them....ryt???
yeh ..i also felt the same
but there is... this is the question followed by my first question... any idea???
no idea ..even google failed to find something ...well yahoo answer has got something but I dont think that might help http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_are_the_Features_of_data_structure
does it mean we have to list all kinds of data structures and explain them briefly??? @AravindG
I told you I have not much idea in that question sorry, perhaps a friend of mine can help @FirstFrostByte :)
fine... thanks 4 ur help:)
yw : )
@ajprincess any idea miss?????
ok, simple. a data structure holds data. They are also known as "collections." Collections are the main class, then comes Lists(ArrayLists,LinkLists) Mappings(HashMap, TreeMap, etc) Arrays, Stacks, Queues, etc.
