Sort array elements

sorts
the elements of `B`

= sort(`A`

)`A`

in ascending order.

If

`A`

is a vector, then`sort(A)`

sorts the vector elements.If

`A`

is a matrix, then`sort(A)`

treats the columns of`A`

as vectors and sorts each column.If

`A`

is a multidimensional array, then`sort(A)`

operates along the first array dimension whose size does not equal 1, treating the elements as vectors.

specifies
additional parameters for sorting. For example, `B`

= sort(___,`Name,Value`

)`sort(A,'ComparisonMethod','abs')`

sorts
the elements of `A`

by magnitude.

The

`sortrows`

function provides additional flexibility for subsorting over multiple columns of matrix or table inputs.The

`sort`

function and the relational operators use different orderings for complex numbers. For more information, see Relational Operations.
