Abstract: SORT is a MACRO-11 version of Singleton's Sort (CACM
Algorithm 347. March 1969). Singleton's Sort is similar
to QUICKERSORT, by R. S. Scowan, which in turn is
similar to QUICKSORT by C. A. R. Hoare. SORT was written
in MACRO-11 Assembly Language, using an RSX-11M
Operating System, and was designed to use the FORTRAN
IV-PLUS calling convention. It could, of course, also be
called from any other language which used the same
calling convention, and should be able to be used with
any other operating system.
SORT was approximately four times as fast as the
corresponding FORTRAN version (taken from the CACM
write-up) in each case.
Notes: This routine was designed to use FORTRAN
IV-PLUS-MACRO-11 calling conventions. Any other
operating system used must follow the same calling
Restrictions: Sort array limited to 16,383 entries.
