## Maxheap and JavaFX

I was goofying around playing with different tools and languages to render
images and I've decided to give JavaFX a try. The idea
was to render a simple data structure.

So, I've implemented a max-heap in java and rendering code using javafx. The
source code can be found here.

The max-heap implementation is straightforward and the api contains the usual
suspects

void add(int i);
/** O(n) bulk insertion. */
static MaxHeap addAll(List xs);
/** Remove the greatest value from the heap. */
int remove();
/** Returns the sorted values in O(n lg n) in sorted . addAll. */
List sorted();

The rendering code
is more interesting and written in scala. It's approximately 150 loc.

The main function creates a heap with random values, renders it, and finally
saves the result into the file `/tmp/maxheap.png`

Here's a sample output.

It's easy to tweak the
main function
to generate heaps of different sizes and values.
