Hi,

I am trying to find the stl's sort function code. Is there any available. The only one I can find is the .h files.

Thanks,

Hi zizi21,

the 'sort' function is implemented in header <algorithm>. There aren't further source files since as it's implemented as function template it has to be implemented in the header.

There is no standard implementation. All the C++ standard does is define what sort must do but how it's implemented is up to the vendor. More often than not sort is implemented as a quick sort (but it doesn't have to be).
