there is always the good 'ole quick sort too:

Code:

class QSortAlgorithm extends SortAlgorithm {
void sort(int a[], int lo0, int hi0) throws Exception {
int lo = lo0;
int hi = hi0;
pause(lo, hi);
if (lo >= hi) {
return;
}
else if( lo == hi - 1 ) {
/*
* sort a two element list by swapping if necessary
*/
if (a[lo] > a[hi]) {
int T = a[lo];
a[lo] = a[hi];
a[hi] = T;
}
return;
}
/*
* Pick a pivot and move it out of the way
*/
int pivot = a[(lo + hi) / 2];
a[(lo + hi) / 2] = a[hi];
a[hi] = pivot;
while( lo < hi ) {
/*
* Search forward from a[lo] until an element is found that
* is greater than the pivot or lo >= hi
*/
while (a[lo] <= pivot && lo < hi) {
lo++;
}
/*
* Search backward from a[hi] until element is found that
* is less than the pivot, or lo >= hi
*/
while (pivot <= a[hi] && lo < hi ) {
hi--;
}
/*
* Swap elements a[lo] and a[hi]
*/
if( lo < hi ) {
int T = a[lo];
a[lo] = a[hi];
a[hi] = T;
pause();
}
if (stopRequested) {
return;
}
}
/*
* Put the median in the "center" of the list
*/
a[hi0] = a[hi];
a[hi] = pivot;
/*
* Recursive calls, elements a[lo0] to a[lo-1] are less than or
* equal to pivot, elements a[hi+1] to a[hi0] are greater than
* pivot.
*/
sort(a, lo0, lo-1);
sort(a, hi+1, hi0);
}
void sort(int a[]) throws Exception {
sort(a, 0, a.length-1);
}
}
