Hi everyone. Which do you think that is the best way to implement a binary tree: -Array -Vector -With pointers

I always use pointers.

    I always try to avoid them. Some teachers said me that the pointers are slower than arrays because pointers use dynamic memory. Is that true?

      It is. But they are quick enough (imho) in the majority of tasks. Moreover, there's a way of making pointers a lot faster: just allocate a big static array, and use this memory when you need to create a new node.

In my opinion,

  • AVL: array
  • Splay tree: pointer
