# Combining 2 codes to make a number counter with user input

I have two pieces of code and i am trying to amalgamate the two. Basically i need a number sorter which asks the user to input values until a number equal to or less than 0 is input. Once this is done the program sorts the numbers into ascending order. So far I have code for user input that ends when a number less than 0 is entered
function Sample()
Loop = true;
Count = 0;
while(Loop)
a = input('Please input a number: ');
if a>=0
Count = Count+1;
else
Loop = false;
end
end
fprintf('Ok, the number of inputs enetered by the user is %d',Count);
end
And a code to put numbers into ascending order.
A = [1 2 4 8 5 11 0.2];
B = zeros(size(A));
for k = 1:numel(A)
[m, ind] = min(A);
A(ind) = [];
B(k) = m;
end
disp(B)
I cant however figure out how to combine the two into a single program. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Why not use the sort() function???

function v = Sample()
Loop = true;
Count = 0;
v = [];
while Loop
a = input('Please input a number: ');
if a >= 0
Count = Count + 1;
v(Count) = a;
else
Loop = false;
end
end
fprintf('Ok, the number of inputs enetered by the user is %d\n', Count);
v = sort(v);
end
