Sorting Animations

Do you like lots of different types of sorting? Here are animations of a bunch. Note--merge sort cheats by not updating the screen as often--it's usually slower than quicksort. Warning--some sorts may take a really long time. If you're interested in what each sort does, you can access the Java files here.


Play with the menus.

Would you like to see the source code or download the program? You can get the files you need here. If you can't see the whole applet, you can press F11 for fullscreen mode or change your screen's resolution.
