Sorting Contest

I remember this earlier post by KenR about comparing sorting algorithms. I found another site that does the same.

Check out this Sorting Contest. Nice thing is you can click one button to start all sorting routines similtaneously.

The fastest Sorting-Algorithm I know is the radix-sort. As a previous sort-function before quick-sort the speed should be pushed up several times in most cases. I used the radix-sort in a very old cruncher and the speed to find the same and nearest codes was incredible compared to others at his time (even if they used hash-algos).

Funny thing is how some people thing radix sort is only usable for integers, and some even think it's only usable for byte-sized integers specifically...

Hybrid algorithms are :-*
