Sorting

Sort function sorts the values of a vector in ascending order (by default) or descending order.

sort (x, decreasing = FALSE , ....,)

sort (x, decreasing = FALSE , na . last = NA, ...)

x Vector of values to be sorted

decreasing Should the sort be increasing or decreasing

na.last for controlling the treatment of NAs.

If TRUE, missing values in the data are put last;

If FALSE, they are put first;

If NA, they are removed.

> y <- c(8,5,7,6)

> y

[1] 8 5 7 6

> sort (y)

[1] 5 6 7 8

> sort (y , decreasing = TRUE)

[1] 8 7 6 5

Order function sorts a variable according to the order of variable.

order (x , decreasing = FALSE, ...,)

order (x, decreasing = FALSE, na.last = TRUE, ...)

x Vector of values to be sorted

decreasing Should the sort be increasing or decreasing

na.last for controlling the treatment of NAs.

If TRUE, missing values in the data are put last;

If FALSE, they are put first;

If NA, they are removed.

> y <- c(8,5,7,6)

> y

[1] 8 5 7 6

> order (y)

[1] 2 4 3 1

> order (y, decreasing = TRUE)

[1] 1 3 4 2

Sort function sorts the values of a vector in ascending order (by default) or descending order.

**Syntax**sort (x, decreasing = FALSE , ....,)

sort (x, decreasing = FALSE , na . last = NA, ...)

x Vector of values to be sorted

decreasing Should the sort be increasing or decreasing

na.last for controlling the treatment of NAs.

If TRUE, missing values in the data are put last;

If FALSE, they are put first;

If NA, they are removed.

**Example**> y <- c(8,5,7,6)

> y

[1] 8 5 7 6

> sort (y)

[1] 5 6 7 8

> sort (y , decreasing = TRUE)

[1] 8 7 6 5
