Numeric Array Sort

Patrick Hunlock Mar 21, 2007

General

JavaScript's Array object only sorts alphabetically. That means if you pass it an array of numbers it will sort the array alphabetically (1,15,100,2,25,200) instead of numerically (1,2,15,25,100,200). This is easily fixed by adding a new method which will sort a numerical array very nicely.


Current Array: 5,9,12,18,56,1,10,42,30,7,97,53,33,35,27

This Numeric Array Sort is very clever. An alternate approach which is very simple. One of the most usable scripts submitted for a long time.
