Linear Search

Linear search, also known as sequential search is an algorithm for finding a target value within a list. It sequentially checks each element of the list for the target value until a match is found or until all the elements have been searched. 

									Public Shared Function Search(list As Integer(), data As Integer) As Integer
	For i As Integer = 0 To list.Length - 1
		If data = list(i) Then
			Return i
		End If

	Return -1
End Function


									Dim list As Integer() = {153, 26, 364, 72, 321}
Dim index As Integer = Search(list, 364)


									index: 2
