I have to submit a C project tomorrow on KD tree and i found this code.I understand some parts of it but rest is out of my head.I know how kd tree is created.Please help

I have to submit a C project tomorrow

It's unfortunate you wanted until the last minute to do your homework. I wounder if your teacher will know you didn't write that code?? What you are attempting to do is called plagiarism and not looked upon very kidly by educational institutions.
