ArraySort provides a stable implementation of merge sort through its sort method. It should be used instead of Array.sort in cases where the order of equal elements has to be retained on all targets.

Static methods

staticsort<T> (a:Array<T>, cmp:T ‑> T ‑> Int):Void

Sorts Array a according to the comparison function cmp, where cmp(x,y) returns 0 if x == y, a positive Int if x > y and a negative Int if x < y.

This operation modifies Array a in place.

This operation is stable: The order of equal elements is preserved.

If a or cmp are null, the result is unspecified.
