    True but when a linear search is done on an ordered array it's called a sequential search fairly certain, even googled it. i.e. 1 by 1 compare value with search value till end of array or value is found

    if thats the case, then its a classic WJEC exam stupidity... never has Sequential Search been an on-spec topic, or has ever been implied within revision/papers to be done on sorted data; always binary.

    Swear down they're just utter retards.

    I'd have to agree sequential search has never been part of the spec, never in any past paper kinda lame but oh well. P.S. how many marks was the data compression question?

    it was on the page, you probably answered it - dont sweat

    im just trying to think of other questions we could discuss hahaha

    what did you say as example use for voice for command? i said mobile phones in cars, cause the driver can teach it commands and it means he can operate the device hands free and without taking gaze off road
