Assume M(i) represents maximum sum from 1 to i without selecting two contiguous numbers.
Base conditions
A[1] if i=1
Max{A[1],A[2]} if i=2
if i > 2
Max{ A[i] + M(i2) , M(i1)}
On this we can write recessive DP program as:
int maxsum(int A[], int n)
{
int M[n];
M[0]=a[0];
m[1] = (A[0]>A[1] ? A[0] : A[1]);
for(i=2;i<n;i++)
M[i]=(M[i1]>M[i2] + A[i] ? M[i1] : M[i2]+A[i]);
return M[n1];
}

 pirate August 07, 2013For Intersection of two sorted arrays, print the element only if the element is present in both arrays.
1) Use two index variables i and j, initial values i = 0, j = 0
2) If arr1[i] is smaller than arr2[j] then increment i.
3) If arr1[i] is greater than arr2[j] then increment j.
4) If both are same then print any of them and increment both i and j.
int printIntersection(int arr1[], int arr2[], int m, int n)
{
int i = 0, j = 0;
while(i < m && j < n)
{
if(arr1[i] < arr2[j])
i++;
else if(arr2[j] < arr1[i])
j++;
else /* if arr1[i] == arr2[j] */
{
printf(" %d ", arr2[j++]);
i++;
}
}
}
Time Complexity: O(m+n) for sorted arrarys.
For unsorted arrays Time complexity will be O(mlogm + nlogn)
Note: Sorting phase takes O(nlogn)
Virtual memory is a place on the hard drive (a swap file) to swap programs to if there's not enough physical memory (RAM) to hold them. A program that's swapped out can't run  another program has to be swapped out to make room for that program to be swapped back in. Every time you click on a program that's swapped out, it has to get swapped back in.
 pirate August 02, 2013The major difference between threads and processes is:
1 Threads share the address space of the process that created it; processes have their own address space.
2 Threads have direct access to the data segment of its process; processes have their own copy of the data segment of the parent process.
3 Threads can directly communicate with other threads of its process; processes must use interprocess communication to communicate with sibling processes.
4 Threads have almost no overhead; processes have considerable overhead.
5 New threads are easily created; new processes require duplication of the parent process.
6 Threads can exercise considerable control over threads of the same process; processes can only exercise control over child processes.
7 Changes to the main thread (cancellation, priority change, etc.) may affect the behavior of the other threads of the process; changes to the parent process does not affect child processes.
why can you run multiple threads but not multiple processes?
On a uniprocessor system, though true parallelism is not achieved, a process scheduling algorithm is applied and the processor is scheduled to execute each process one at a time yielding an illusion of concurrency.
Do the level order traversal. Print first element after each level change.
int leftMostBinaryTree(struct BinaryTreeNode *root)
{
if(!root) return 0;
struct Queue *Q=CreateQueue();
EnQueue(Q,root);
EnQueue(Q,NULL); //end of first level
while(!IsEmptyQueue(Q)){
root = DeQueue(Q);
if(root == NULL) {
if(!IsEmptyQueue(Q)) //Put another marker for next level
EnQueue(Q,NULL);
if(root>left) //Print left Most element
print("%d",Q>left);
}
else{
if(root>left)
Enqueue(Q,root>left);
if(root>right)
Enqueue(Q,root>right);
}

August 02, 2013 @vgeek:
Good try I appreciate, program gives correct solution but problem in time complexity in worst case.
If given input is in descending and last value is greatest then this time complexity is O(n^2) where everytime your j variable goes end.
ex: 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,11
@Ashish: solution always gives O(N)
In python we can write in simple
in pattern * means is repeated zero or more times (allowing a pattern to repeat zero times means it does not need to appear at all to match).
and pattern ? means the pattern appears zero or one time.

July 31, 2013 Replace all elements using one traversal of the array.
The idea is to start from the rightmost element, move to the left side one by one, and keep track of the maximum element. Replace every element with the maximum element only if it is greater than current element otherwise 1.
input {16, 17, 4, 3, 5, 2},
output {17, 1, 5, 5, 1 1}
void nearGreater(int arr[], int size)
{
int max_from_right = arr[size1];
int current;
arr[size1] = 1;
for(int i = size2; i >= 0; i)
{
current = arr[i];
if(max_from_right > current)
arr[i] = max_from_right;
else {
arr[i] = 1;
max_from_right = current;
}
}
O(n)

Logic is bitwise and operation between networkaddress and IPaddress gives networkaddress.
1. Convert decimal dotted quad string to long integer
2. Convert a network address to a long integer
3. verify ip & net == net
Python code:
import socket,struct
def addressInNetwork(ip,net):
ipaddr = struct.unpack('L',socket.inet_aton(ip))[0]//long int IPaddr
netaddr,bits = net.split('/') //separate netaddress and mask
netmask = struct.unpack('L',socket.inet_aton(netaddr))[0] & ((2L<<int(bits)1)  1)
return ipaddr & netmask == netmask
returns true if it matches.

July 26, 2013 @vgeek:
Inplace means that you should update the original string rather than creating a new one.
In your recursive call every time creating new string "char str[] "
Its simple just swap begin with end chars
void reverse_in_place(char a[],int n) {
for(i=0; i< n/2 ; i ++)
swap(a[i], a[ni]);
}

July 24, 2013 @oOZz great Algos
I am giving program for your first Algo.
void search(int A[],int n,int K) {
int i,j,temp;
Sort(A,n);
for(i=0,j=n1;i<j;) {
temp = A[i] + A[j];
if(temp == K) {
printf("Elements found %d %d", i, j);
return;
}else if(temp < k)
i=i+1;
else
j=j1;
}
return;
}
Even it works without Sort since we are checking all possibilities.
 pirate July 20, 2013We can solve this in two scans Time complexity: o(n) ans space complexity o(1)
1) In first scan for each of occurrence of an element add the array size to that element.
2) In second scan Divide the element value by n gives frequency of occurrence.
void repetitions(int A[],int n)
{
int i=0;
for(i=0;i<n;i++)
A[A[i] %n] + = n;
for(i=0;i<n;i++) {
frequency = A[i]/n;
element=i;
print("Element= %d , frequency = %d", element, frequency );
}
