Topological Sorting - How Should I Begin to Complete My To Do List?

  • Hagen Höpfner


In this chapter the author presents a method for topological sorting. This is needed when there is a sequence of jobs that depend on each other – for example, job A must be executed before job B can start. The goal of topological sorting in this case is to come up with an order of the jobs so that they can be executed one after the other without violating any dependencies between two jobs.
