    What are heaps. The Mike Meyers book talks about heaps on pages 652 and 653 of chapter 15. I tried looking on Google and couldnt find anything. Could someone please help.

    Mike wrote more than one book and they are also in different print. Maybe you can give the context? Or the title of the book?

    Having checked the most likely book (All in One 5th ed) I see what you are refering to.

    In this context a 'heap' is a pre-allocated area of memory used for a particular purpose.

    In the Win9x world things like icons were placed here. When the heap was used up then new items wouldn't appear. You may have seen old Win95 boxes with dozens of icons on the desktop, and some of them were not rendered correctly. This was because the heap for that particular resource was all used!

    Prof please do yourself and us a big favour and book the exam right now, today! You have given a new meaning to the word procrastination and have taken caution to another level.

    You will pass mate, what is your problem?

    A table without an index is a min-type heap. That's why retreiveing the first record is computationally inexpensive and the last extremely expensive (requiring a full table scan.)
