Hi Gustavo,

You will not find it, because there are a lot of things that can be sorted,
has each of those his own sort methods, so when you are searching for a
special sort tell us what you are searching for.

However something as a Sort what was in Dos is not anymore in dotNet.

It's all about the comparer. By providing a custom comparing mechanism
for the type of elements to be compared implementing the different
sorting algorithms is not a big problem. I am currently working on a
generic, extensible sorting library that implements many different
sorting algorithms that can be used for different datatypes (by using
generics).

I thought of given that answer because you can sort everything with that,
however what is that when in the message from the OP is stated Shell?

Is that an Anglo/Dutch oil company?

I assume the OP is referring to the Shellsort algorithm:

Herfried,

I did not know that, I was thinking about a sort in the Dos command using
the pipe

Thanks,
