How to create and use Stack in Julia

Programming Bytes

Overview

In Julia, the Stack is a wrapper of a Deque type that provides interfaces for LIFO LIFO means the last item inserted into the data will be removed first. data structure. A stack follows the last-in-first-out (LIFO) data structure.

Imagine a pile of tiles placed in vertical order. If we needed to grab a tile from the middle of the pile, we'd need to remove every tile on top of it first. This method is referred to as LIFO.

Operations

It mainly includes three operations:

  • push: Add an element to the stack.
  • pop: Remove an element from the stack.
  • peek: Get the topmost element of the stack.

Example

Below is a sample code for using a Stack in Julia:

using DataStructures

# create a new Stack 
s = Stack{Int}()

# push an item to the top of the stack
push!(s, 1)
push!(s, 2)
push!(s, 3)

println("The stack is $(s)")

println("The Length of stack is :", length(s) )
println("The Top element of stack is :", first(s) )
println("Removing last element of stack is :", pop!(s) )

println("The stack is: $(s)")

# emptying the stack 
empty!(s)

println("After Emptying stack is: $(s)")
Stack implementation

Explanation

  • Line 4: We create a Stack object with the name s.
  • Lines 7–9: We use the push!() method to insert three elements into the stack.
  • Line 13: We use the length() method to get the number of elements of the stack.
  • Line 14: We use the first() method to get the element at the top of the stack.
  • Line 15: We use the pop!() method to remove the top element of the stack.
  • Line 20: We use the empty() method to remove all elements of the stack .

Note: The complete reference to the Stack can be found on the official Julia page here.
