JavaScript arrays can be used in the same way – it’s just the terminology that’s a bit different. Rather than duplicating array functionality for queues, queue functionality exists in the array functions of JavaScript. What is a Queue Data Structure? A queue is a sequence of items in a specific order. Items can be enqueued (added … Read more
