A Web Page for Binary Searches

The sort method, when applied to an array of strings, returns a copy of that array in which the strings appear in alphabetical order. For example, if the variable words stored the array ["foo", "bar", "biz"], then the call words .sort() would return ["bar", "biz", "foo"].

Create a Web page named bin.html that performs binary searches. Like seq.html, this page should contain a text area in which the user can enter a sequence of words and a text box for specifying the word to search for. When the user clicks a button, the page should sort the words in alphabetical order (using the array method sort) and then call a function named BinSearch to perform the search. As in seq.html, the result of the search (either the index at which the word was found or else -- 1) should be displayed in a separate text box.

Solution Summary

In this solution, a web page is created for binary searches.
