Class Sorter<T>

  • Direct Known Subclasses:

    public abstract class Sorter<T>
    extends java.lang.Object
    This class performs merge sort over an array but allocates the additional array used in merge sort upfront so if the arrays of same size will be sorted repeatedly this sorter can be reused to minimize garbage collection with the price of having memory for extra array always being used.
