◆ sort() [2/4]

template<typename RandomAccessIterator >
void thrust::sort ( RandomAccessIterator  first,
RandomAccessIterator  last 

sort sorts the elements in [first, last) into ascending order, meaning that if i and j are any two valid iterators in [first, last) such that i precedes j, then *j is not less than *i. Note: sort is not guaranteed to be stable. That is, suppose that *i and *j are equivalent: neither one is less than the other. It is not guaranteed that the relative order of these two elements will be preserved by sort.

This version of sort compares objects using operator<.

firstThe beginning of the sequence.
lastThe end of the sequence.
Template Parameters
RandomAccessIteratoris a model of Random Access Iterator, RandomAccessIterator is mutable, and RandomAccessIterator's value_type is a model of LessThan Comparable, and the ordering relation on RandomAccessIterator's value_type is a strict weak ordering, as defined in the LessThan Comparable requirements.

The following code snippet demonstrates how to use sort to sort a sequence of integers.

#include <thrust/sort.h>
const int N = 6;
int A[N] = {1, 4, 2, 8, 5, 7};
thrust::sort(A, A + N);
// A is now {1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8}
