Forum Thread: Who Wants to Learn About Sorting?

Hey NB Community!

I have a question: who wants me to write up some tutorials on sorting and the most popular sorting algorithms?

This isn't necessarily hacking, but I figure that most of you guys have interest in Computer Science (CS). Plus, a firm, deep knowledge of CS can help the eager hacker.

I'd be writing in C++ and Ruby, since those are my favorite languages. Every tutorial would be in BOTH languages.

Please let me know what you think down in the comments section.

Thanks NBers,

Well, what is it to begin with?


Phoenix, this post is my proposal. I did not intend to teach sorting in this post.

But, sorting is the rearrangement of elements in a given array so that each element is greater than every element before it. Some methods of sorting are more efficient than others, as I will explain soon in my actual How-Tos.


Well it looks interesting. Give it a go!


add every sorting methods pros and cons to your tutorial

I plan to discuss complexity and memory consumption, if that's what you mean.

Do you intend to introduce the big O notation..?
