More information:
This is a number sorting algorithm that I wrote one afternoon and is pretty easy to get your head around in comparison with what else is out there. If you guessed it's a bit slow, you're right. But the fact of the matter is, it's more than adequate for sorting a few hundred or so numbers. When compiled, it can sort 100 numbers in less than 100mS on a mid-level PIII system. Much faster methods exist, true, but they're normally quite complex and sometimes even quite daunting. You might squeeze a few thousand or so out in a few seconds on a really fast system, but this project is only a 3.3KB download, so what have you got to lose?
