The procedure then * calculates an index midway between the two indices, determines which of the * two subarrays to search, and then does a recursive call to search that * subarray. Each of the calls is tail recursive, so a compiler need not make a * new stack frame for each call. The variables imin and imax are the lowest and * highest inclusive indices that are searched. * */ public class BinarySearch { public static final int NOT_FOUND = -1; public static void main(String[] args) { int SIZE = 8; Comparable[] a = new Integer[SIZE]; for (int i = 0; i < SIZE; i++) { a[ i] = new Integer(i * 2); } for (int i = 0; i < SIZE * 2; i++) { System.out.println("Found " + i + " at " + binarySearch(a, new Integer(i))); } } public static int binarySearch(Comparable[] a, Comparable x) { int low = 0; int high = a.length - 1; int mid; while (low <= high) { mid = (low + high) / 2; if (a[ mid].compareTo(x) < 0) { low = mid + 1; } else if (a[ mid].compareTo(x) > 0) { high = mid - 1; } else { return mid; } } return NOT_FOUND; // NOT_FOUND = -1 } }
