Table of contents## Procedurelstlti_c ( Last integer element less than ) SpiceInt lstlti_c ( SpiceInt x, SpiceInt n, ConstSpiceInt * array ) ## AbstractFind the index of the largest array element less than a given integer `x' in an array of non-decreasing integers. ## Required_ReadingNone. ## KeywordsARRAY SEARCH ## Brief_I/OVARIABLE I/O DESCRIPTION -------- --- -------------------------------------------------- x I Upper bound value to search against. n I Number of elements in `array'. array I Array of possible lower bounds. The function returns the index of the last element of `array' that is less than `x'. ## Detailed_Inputx is an integer value acting as an upper bound: the element of `array' that is the greatest element less than `x' is to be found. n is the total number of elements in `array'. array is an array of integers that forms a non-decreasing sequence. The elements of array need not be distinct. ## Detailed_OutputThe function returns the index of the highest-indexed element in the input array that is less than `x'. The routine assumes the array elements are sorted in non-decreasing order. Indices range from 0 to n-1. If all elements of `array' are greater than or equal to `x', the routine returns the value -1. If `n' is less than or equal to zero, the routine returns the value -1. ## ParametersNone. ## ExceptionsError free. 1) If `n' is less than or equal to zero, the function returns -1. This case is not treated as an error. 2) If the input array is not sorted in non-decreasing order, the output of this routine is undefined. No error is signaled. ## FilesNone. ## ParticularsThis routine uses a binary search algorithm and so requires at most on the order of log (n) 2 steps to compute the value of ## Examples1) Let array be assigned the following values: array[0] = -2; array[1] = -2; array[2] = 0; array[3] = 1; array[4] = 1; array[5] = 11; The table below demonstrates the behavior of ## Restrictions1) If the sequence of integer numbers in the input array `array' is not non-decreasing, the program will run to completion but the index found will not mean anything. ## Literature_ReferencesNone. ## Author_and_InstitutionN.J.
