Well maybe thuis is not really "mac programming" related but i hope that some of you guys plz help me.......I'm looking for at least 40 different sorting algorithms ....ar least the name of the algorithm............well cya!

Seriously though, here's a bunch more:

This is to easy. Look here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sort_algorithm

If you need more there are many triveal variation of the listed sort algorithm

And then there is my favorite "distributed" sort algorthm: You get a bull horn an yell out "tall people to the left short to the right, sort it out..

why?

are you going to sort them? :-)

See: Knuth, Donald E. -- Volume 3.

But to get you going: bubblesort, quick sort, merge sort, heap sort, insertion sort, selection sort, shell sort, radix sort, transposition sort, shear sort, shaker sort.

Buble sort

Doesn't the bubblesort win two awards?

'The easiest to implement sorting algorithm'

and

'The most unbelievably slow sorting algorithm'

Bubblesort + InsertSort FTW...

I had to do a project based on an old ACM paper that used a sorting algorithm that used a modified Bubblesort then sorted the rest with Insertsort...fast as heck. :D

It's about that relationship for all of them. The fastest are the most difficult to implement. Isn't that to be expected?

QuickSort isn't that hard to understand. Radix sorts, though... they're kinda funky.

Yep, and one more.

The easiest to explain to a 4 year old. ;)
