Ahh sorry if you're looking for a Python algorithms book, then this isn't it. I wanted to use C here to get at the low-level mechanics for some of the data structures that I wanted to cover. You could convert the code to Python (treating it like pseudocode), which I think would really solidify understanding. But no, direct Python code isn't here.

Thank you,
Dan

Thank you!

And anyone who wins or borrows or buys the book, or reads the sample chapter: it would be a privilege to receive any feedback that you had time to send. Especially if you're learning this material for the first time.
