Sort a single-precision floating-point strided array using insertion sort.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/blas-ext-base-ssortins

Usage

var ssortins = require( '@stdlib/blas-ext-base-ssortins' );

ssortins( N, order, x, stride )

Sorts a single-precision floating-point strided array x using insertion sort.

var Float32Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float32' );

var x = new Float32Array( [ 1.0, -2.0, 3.0, -4.0 ] );

ssortins( x.length, 1.0, x, 1 );
// x => <Float32Array>[ -4.0, -2.0, 1.0, 3.0 ]

The function has the following parameters:

  • N: number of indexed elements.
  • order: sort order. If order < 0.0, the input strided array is sorted in decreasing order. If order > 0.0, the input strided array is sorted in increasing order. If order == 0.0, the input strided array is left unchanged.
  • x: input Float32Array.
  • stride: index increment.

The N and stride parameters determine which elements in x are accessed at runtime. For example, to sort every other element

var Float32Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float32' );
var floor = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-floor' );

var x = new Float32Array( [ 1.0, -2.0, 3.0, -4.0 ] );
var N = floor( x.length / 2 );

ssortins( N, -1.0, x, 2 );
// x => <Float32Array>[ 3.0, -2.0, 1.0, -4.0 ]

Note that indexing is relative to the first index. To introduce an offset, use typed array views.

var Float32Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float32' );
var floor = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-floor' );

// Initial array...
var x0 = new Float32Array( [ 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 ] );

// Create an offset view...
var x1 = new Float32Array( x0.buffer, x0.BYTES_PER_ELEMENT*1 ); // start at 2nd element
var N = floor( x0.length/2 );

// Sort every other element...
ssortins( N, -1.0, x1, 2 );
// x0 => <Float32Array>[ 1.0, 4.0, 3.0, 2.0 ]

ssortins.ndarray( N, order, x, stride, offset )

Sorts a single-precision floating-point strided array x using insertion sort and alternative indexing semantics.

var Float32Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float32' );

var x = new Float32Array( [ 1.0, -2.0, 3.0, -4.0 ] );

ssortins.ndarray( x.length, 1.0, x, 1, 0 );
// x => <Float32Array>[ -4.0, -2.0, 1.0, 3.0 ]

The function has the following additional parameters:

  • offset: starting index.

While typed array views mandate a view offset based on the underlying buffer, the offset parameter supports indexing semantics based on a starting index. For example, to access only the last three elements of x

var Float32Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float32' );

var x = new Float32Array( [ 1.0, -2.0, 3.0, -4.0, 5.0, -6.0 ] );

ssortins.ndarray( 3, 1.0, x, 1, x.length-3 );
// x => <Float32Array>[ 1.0, -2.0, 3.0, -6.0, -4.0, 5.0 ]

Notes

  • If N <= 0 or order == 0.0, both functions return x unchanged.
  • The algorithm distinguishes between -0 and +0. When sorted in increasing order, -0 is sorted before +0. When sorted in decreasing order, -0 is sorted after +0.
  • The algorithm sorts NaN values to the end. When sorted in increasing order, NaN values are sorted last. When sorted in decreasing order, NaN values are sorted first.
  • The algorithm has space complexity O(1) and worst case time complexity O(N^2).
  • The algorithm is efficient for small strided arrays (typically N <= 20) and is particularly efficient for sorting strided arrays which are already substantially sorted.
  • The algorithm is stable, meaning that the algorithm does not change the order of strided array elements which are equal or equivalent (e.g., NaN values).
  • The input strided array is sorted in-place (i.e., the input strided array is mutated).

Examples

var round = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-round' );
var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var Float32Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float32' );
var ssortins = require( '@stdlib/blas-ext-base-ssortins' );

var rand;
var sign;
var x;
var i;

x = new Float32Array( 10 );
for ( i = 0; i < x.length; i++ ) {
    rand = round( randu()*100.0 );
    sign = randu();
    if ( sign < 0.5 ) {
        sign = -1.0;
    } else {
        sign = 1.0;
    }
    x[ i ] = sign * rand;
}
console.log( x );

ssortins( x.length, -1.0, x, -1 );
console.log( x );
