Applications of linear and binary search, Data Structure & Algorithms

The searching method are applicable to a number of places in current's world, may it be Internet, search engines, text pattern matching, on line enquiry, finding a record from database, etc.

The most vital application of searching is to track a specific record from a large file, efficiently and faster.

Let us discuss some applications of Searching in the world of computers.

Spell Checker

Generally this application is used in Word Processors. It is depend on a program for checking spelling that it checks and searches sequentially. That is, it employee the concept of Linear Search. The program looks up word in list of words from a dictionary. Any word which is searched into the list is supposed to be spelled correctly. Any word that isn't found is supposed to be spelled wrong.
