Probably one more program due for rest of class.
Test Monday.
Reading for Wednesday: Read 14.1

The following items will probably be on the test.
Brute force search: Two versions.
If the list is unsorted, assuming it doesn’t find the sought value, than it will go through the whole list.
If the list is sorted, than even if it doesn’t find the value, it can stop looking when the value is exceeded.
(either way, if it does find it’s value, it can stop going through the list when it finds it).

Remember the five types of functions in a class:

By default, members of a class are private. Public functions have to be defined in a public section.

Inside the class, private and public functions and variables are available.
Outside the class only public functions and variables are available (and we rarely define public variables).

.h files have the specification and documentation of classes.
.cpp files have the implementation
the main brings them together

We have constructors that take arguments and default constructors that don’t take arguments.
We need the defaults for arrays. You cannot pass parameters to an array when creating it.

Understand the selection sort. Understand what happens in the inner loop.
There will likely be a question like this:
5 89 4 27 99 15 87 77 34
What will this look like after three passes of a selection sort?
Pass 1 (finds the 4, swaps it with the 5)
4 89 5 27 99 15 87 77 34
Pass 2 (finds the 5, swaps it with the 89)
4 5 89 27 99 15 87 77 34
Pass 3 (finds the 15, swaps it with the 89)
4 5 15 27 99 89 87 77 34
