in a tree is the child up or down? Can't Post

*all confused*

1. once and for all, lets get this straight. If I am programming a tree structure, are children "up the tree" or "down the tree"?

2. also, if i use the term "tree" to refer to the previously mentioned concept, then what one "word" should i use to describe the opposite/inverse concept?

my current assumption: if the branches of a REAL tree go up, and if i think of the "tree" concept in this fashion. then what "word" do i use to describe the shape of an upside down tree?

They don't _really_ go in any direction. They're really just random areas in your computers memory.

You can visualise them going in whatever direction makes it easier for you to understand.
