This submodule implements the overloaded sorting subroutine SORT
that can be used to sort four kinds of INTEGER arrays and three kinds
of REAL arrays. Sorting is in order of increasing value, with the worst
case run time performance of O(N Ln(N)).
SORT uses the INTROSORT sorting algorithm of David Musser,
http://www.cs.rpi.edu/~musser/gp/introsort.ps. introsort is a hybrid
unstable comparison algorithm combining quicksort, insertion sort, and
heap sort. While this algorithm is always O(N Ln(N)) it is relatively
fast on randomly ordered data, but inconsistent in performance on partly
sorted data, sometimes having merge sort performance, sometimes having
better than quicksort performance.
Nodes of different colours represent the following:
Solid arrows point from a submodule to the (sub)module which it is
descended from. Dashed arrows point from a module or program unit to
modules which it uses. Where possible, edges connecting nodes are given different colours to make them easier to distinguish in large graphs.
