    Default [SOLVED] BST Frequency Counter

    I really need help on this one.

    Let me break this down I have two BST, one to hold all the letter of the alphabet and the other BST, which hold all the words that contains that letter.

    My problem is how do I call the 2nd BST within the 1st BST. I want my code to search the first BST for the letter the word began with, and then within that insert method call the second BST insert method.

    I hope that make sense.

    Yeah, a BST is a Binary Search Tree, and I'd figured it out. Thanks

    could you please post your solution so that if others have the same problem they can refer back to this thread instead of creating a new one. That is how the forums are suppose to work.

    Ok, the quick and dirty explanation is to make your primary BST have a BST container ie:

    Java Code:
    private class Node{
    Node left, right;
    String data;
    BST secondaryBST = new BST();
    }
    and then whenever you want to have access to the secondary BST method just use a code like "node.secondaryBST.method()"
    I hope that make sense, if anyone need more explanation just let me know.
