Postfix expression algorithm, Data Structure & Algorithms

Assignment Help:

Write an algorithm to calculate a postfix expression.  Execute your algorithm using the given postfix expression as your input : a b + c d +*f ↑ .

To evaluate a postfix expression by using the given values:

clear the stack

symb  = next input character while(not end of input)

{

if (symb is an operand)

push onto the stack;

else

{

pop two operands from the stack;

result=op1 symb op2;

push result onto the stack;

}

symb = next input character;

}

return (pop (stack));

The input postfix expression is given as:- ab+cd+*f^

Symb                 Stack                                          Evaluation a    a

b                    a b

+                   pop a and b                                 (a + b) Push (a + b)

c                    (a + b) c

d                   (a + b) c d

+                   pop c and d                                 (c + d) Push (c + d)

*                    pop (a + b) and (c + d)                (a + b) * (c + d)

f                    (a + b) * (c + d) f

^                    pop (a + b) * (c + d) and f           (a + b) * (c + d) ^ f

The result of evaluation is ((a + b) * (c + d)) ^ f
