Sorting algorithms demo

A Java desktop GUI program that shows an animation of a sorting algorithm in action. Over a dozen sort algos are supported (e.g. bubble sort, insertion sort, heapsort, quick sort). The array size and execution speed can be customized by the user.

This package also includes a simple command line program and JUnit test suite.

A more detailed description can be found on the project home page:

How to run

If you have the JAR file and you are on Windows, then you can double click on the JAR file in Windows Explorer and the program will run. Otherwise to run from the JAR file, run this from a command line: java -jar TheJarFile.jar

Otherwise, compile the source code on the command line or in an IDE, and run the main class io.nayuki.sortalgodemo.visual.SortDemo.
