A queue is a data structure that follows the First-In-First-Out (FIFO) principle, where the first element added to the queue is the first one to be removed. It operates like a waiting line, where new elements are added at the rear, and existing elements are removed from the front. Queues are commonly used in computer programming and software development to manage tasks or data in a sequential order. They are essential in scenarios where tasks or processes need to be executed in a specific order, ensuring fairness and efficiency in handling operations.
