Methods for sorting have been intensively studied and optimized. Nevertheless, many poor algorithms (or poor versions of good algorithms) are still in circulation. VB2TheMax's friend David B. Ring have translated a variety of sorting routines into Visual Basic and compared their performance. The collection includes some of the faster algorithms known (e.g., QuickSort, RadixSort and Merge-Sort) and incorporates many optimizations known to increase speed and/or consistency. In this article he discusses and compares the various sorting methods, and provides code to use them in your own applications.
