selection sort
« Thread started on: May 31^{st}, 2012, 11:00am » 

A search for the last 1500 days showed about three good examples of Selection Sort, and none of them in the Articles & Tutorials board.
This type of SORT uses two FOR loops to cut an array of data into two parts: a sorted part and an unsorted part. The code searches for the smallest (or largest) value in the set of unsorted data and exchanges with the lowest index position of the unsorted part of the data.
I ran this example several times and it showed as reliable.
Code:dim numbers(30)
for x=1 to 15
anyx=1+int(15*rnd(1))
let numbers(x)=anyx
next x
for x0=1 to 15
print x0;" ";numbers(x0)
next x0
'SORTING ALGORITHM
needExchange=0
for i=1 to 15
iOfLow=i
asIfLow=numbers(i)
for j=i+1 to 15
if numbers(j)<asIfLow then
asIfLow=numbers(j)
iOfLow=j
rem exchange item j with item i
rem in case condition was met.
needExchange=1
end if
next j 'this makes +1 added to j
if needExchange=1 then
temp=numbers(i)
numbers(i)=numbers(iOfLow)
numbers(iOfLow)=temp
needExchange=0
end if
next i
'HOW WELL DID SORTING WORK?
print "*****Results*****"
for x1=1 to 15
print x1;" ";numbers(x1)
next x1
END

I remember some post here with this kind of code :)
Code:size = 50
dim bubble(size)
dim selection(size)
print "Initial array: "
for i = 1 to size
bubble(i) = sizei+1
selection(i) = bubble(i)
print bubble(i); " ";
next i
print : print
' shuffle
print"shuffled"
For i = size to 1 Step 1
x = Int(Rnd(1) * i) + 1
temp = bubble(x)
bubble(x) = bubble(i)
bubble(i) = temp
selection(i) = bubble(i)
print bubble(i); " ";
Next i
print : print
'test bubble sort
for i = 1 to size1
for j = 1 to sizei
compareBubble = compareBubble+1
if bubble(j) > bubble(j+1) then ' SMALLEST to LARGEST
swapBubble = swapBubble+1
tmp = bubble(j)
bubble(j) = bubble(j+1)
bubble(j+1) = tmp
end if
next j
next i
'test selection sort
for i = 1 to size1
min = selection(i)
pos = i
for j = i+1 to size
compareSelect = compareSelect+1
if selection(j) < min then
pos = j
min = selection(j)
end if
next j
swapSelect = swapSelect+1
selection(pos) = selection(i)
selection(i) = min
next i
print "Bubble sort"
print compareBubble; " comparisons, "; swapBubble; " swaps."
for i = 1 to size
print bubble(i); " ";
next i
print : print
print "Selection sort"
print compareSelect; " comparisons, "; swapSelect; " swaps."

I keep the following SORT programs on file for review in my pc:
For sorting words...
1.) TacSort
Code:' tacsort 1.0  09/11/10 compares tacsort to bubble sort and insert sort
' 1.1  09/12/10 no comparion to others sorts, tacsort only
' 1.2  09/12/10 reads until eof, then dimensions arrays based on input count
' this program no longer reads the first 5,000 but rather to eof.
' 1.3  9/13/10 ascending or descending
'
' tacsort splits your file in array a$, into 4 parts
' then runs 4 insert sorts and merges the parts back into the whole  p6$.
'
' this version was designed to sort an array of words, ascending or descending.
'
' who should use this sort? If you are sorting a small list which runs quickly,
' no sense in using tacsort. If you have a bubble sort that runs too long, you may want to swtich.
'
' bubble = 3:35 comments to tcoffin1@cfl.rr.com
' insert = 1:51 times are based on 5,000 records
' TACsort = :28
'
' ***** NOTE  lowhigh$, must be set properly for ascending or descending sort
' a  will sort a to z (lower to higher), z  will sort z to a (higher to lower)
' no need to change code, just the variable lowhigh$
'
lowhigh$="a":sort$="ascending":if lowhigh$="z" then sort$="descending"

Re: selection sort
« Reply #3 on: Jun 4^{th}, 2012, 5:50pm » 

I recently had a need to sort words and found that my saved examples irritated me. The list of words was small, so I thought I would just setup a basic sort.
Then I found that the user would have a need to sort the data several different ways while running the program. The data is a list of items, and each item could fall within different groups.
The program would have to sort three different ways: alphabetically, alphabetically within each group, and by entry order.
I am oldschool, so the program handles everything with GOSUB's (not SUBS, and not FUNCTIONS). So, it is not the best way to do the job, but for me, it gets the job done.
The following is a demo of what happens in the program that I made...
Code:READ NumberOfGroups
READ NumberOfItems
DIM Groups$(NumberOfGroups)
DIM A$(NumberOfItems,3)
' A$(X,1) is the item Name
' A$(X,2) is the Group of the item
' A$(X,3) is the item Entry Order
DIM TempReSortA$(NumberOfItems,3)
GOSUB [setupData]
[DoAgain]
GOSUB [showData]
GOSUB [getSortChoice]
SELECT CASE choice
CASE 1
GOSUB [SortDataAlpha]
CASE 2
GOSUB [SortDataAlphaByGroup]
CASE ELSE
GOSUB [SortDataEntry]
END SELECT
GOTO [DoAgain]
' subroutines ................
[SortDataEntry]
' SORT BY ENTRY ORDER
[redoSortDataEntry]
SortChangeFlag = 0
FOR X = 1 to NumberOfItems1
IF VAL(A$(X,3)) > VAL(A$(X+1,3)) THEN
' switch em
FOR Y = 1 to 3
temp$ = A$(X,Y)
A$(X,Y) = A$(X+1,Y)
A$(X+1,Y) = temp$
NEXT Y
SortChangeFlag = 1
END IF
NEXT X
IF SortChangeFlag <> 0 THEN
GOTO [redoSortDataEntry]
END IF
RETURN
[SortDataAlphaByGroup]
' SORT ALPHABETICALLY WITHIN GROUPS
spotOfTheOrder = 1
REDIM TempReSortA$(NumberOfItems,3)
FOR X = 1 to NumberOfGroups
FOR Y = 1 to NumberOfItems
IF A$(Y,2) = Groups$(X) THEN
FOR Z = 1 to 3
TempReSortA$(spotOfTheOrder,Z) = A$(Y,Z)
NEXT Z
spotOfTheOrder = spotOfTheOrder + 1
END IF
NEXT Y
NEXT X
FOR X = 1 to NumberOfItems
FOR Y = 1 to 3
A$(X,Y) = TempReSortA$(X,Y)
NEXT Y
NEXT X
' Now sort the items

[sdabgAgain]
sdabgMoveFlag = 0
FOR Y = 1 to NumberOfItems1
IF ( A$(Y,2) = Groups$(X) ) AND ( A$(Y+1,2) = Groups$(X) ) THEN
' This item is in the currently sorting group
' and needs to be looked at
IF A$(Y,1) > A$(Y+1,1) THEN
' switch em
FOR Z = 1 to 3
temp$ = A$(Y,Z)
A$(Y,Z) = A$(Y+1,Z)
A$(Y+1,Z) = temp$

A$(X,Y) = A$(X+1,Y)
A$(X+1,Y) = temp$
SortChangeFlag = 1
NEXT Y
END IF
NEXT X
IF SortChangeFlag <> 0 THEN
GOTO [redoSortDataAlpha]
END IF
RETURN
[getSortChoice]
PRINT "1  SORT ALPHABETICALLY"
PRINT "2  SORT ALPHABETICALLY WITHIN GROUPS"
PRINT "3  SORT BY ENTRY ORDER"
PRINT
INPUT "CHOICE ? "; choice
IF ( choice <> INT(choice) ) OR (choice < 1 ) OR (choice > 3 ) THEN
PRINT "INVALID CHOICE. TRY AGAIN."

To sort same data in a three ways, it is enough to change compare function. All other stuff stays the same: Code:READ NumberOfGroups

GOSUB [showData]
GOSUB [getSortChoice]
'sort, as it was
[redoSort]
SortChangeFlag = 0
FOR X = 1 to NumberOfItems1
IF compare(X, choice) > 0 THEN
' switch em
FOR Y = 1 to 3
temp$ = A$(X,Y)
A$(X,Y) = A$(X+1,Y)
A$(X+1,Y) = temp$
NEXT Y
SortChangeFlag = 1
END IF
NEXT X
IF SortChangeFlag <> 0 THEN
GOTO [redoSort]
END IF
GOTO [DoAgain]
' subroutines ................
function compare(X, sortMode)
'compares X and X+1 item
'returns 1 if item(X)>item(X+1)

'PRINT "1  SORT ALPHABETICALLY"

'Actually should pad groups to same length:

Nice !
And also the following line can be removed entirely...
Code:DIM TempReSortA$(NumberOfItems,3)
