BubbleSort - Sort Arrays using the BubbleSort Algorithm

' Bubble Sort an array of any type
' BubbleSort is especially convenient with small arrays (1,000
' items or fewer) or with arrays that are already almost sorted
' NUMELS is the index of the last item to be sorted, and is
' useful if the array is only partially filled.
' Works with any kind of array, except UDTs and fixed-length
' strings, and including objects if your are sorting on their
' default property. String are sorted in case-sensitive mode.
' You can write faster procedures if you modify the first two lines
' to account for a specific data type, eg.
' Sub BubbleSortS(arr() As Single, Optional numEls As Variant,
'  '     Optional descending As Boolean)
'   Dim value As Single

Sub BubbleSort(arr As Variant, Optional numEls As Variant, _
    Optional descending As Boolean)

    Dim value As Variant
    Dim index As Long
    Dim firstItem As Long
    Dim indexLimit As Long, lastSwap As Long

    ' account for optional arguments
    If IsMissing(numEls) Then numEls = UBound(arr)
    firstItem = LBound(arr)
    lastSwap = numEls

        indexLimit = lastSwap - 1
        lastSwap = 0
        For index = firstItem To indexLimit
            value = arr(index)
            If (value > arr(index + 1)) Xor descending Then
                ' if the items are not in order, swap them
                arr(index) = arr(index + 1)
                arr(index + 1) = value
                lastSwap = index
            End If
    Loop While lastSwap
End Sub
