|Abstract||In this paper we compare the performance of eight different priority queue implementations: four of them are explicitly designed to work in an external-memory setting, the others are standard internal-memory queues available in the LEDA library [Mehlhorn and Näher 1999]. Two of the external-memory priority queues are obtained by engineering known internal-memory priority queues with the aim of achieving effective performance on external storage devices (i.e., Radix heaps [Ahuja et al. 1990] and array heaps [Thorup 1996]). Our experimental framework includes some simple tests, like random sequences of insert or delete-minimum operations, as well as more advanced tests consisting of intermixed sequences of update operations and "application driven" update sequences originated by simulations of Dijkstra's algorithm on large graph instances. Our variegate spectrum of experimental results gives a good picture of the features of these priority queues, thus being helpful to anyone interested in the use of such data structures on very large data sets.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
