sort (Matlab function)

Sort elements in ascending order

Matlab/Scilab equivalent

Matlab Scilab
No equivalent

Particular cases

Scilab sort and Matlab sort are different functions !

For character string inputs, please use better mtlb_sort in Scilab.

B = sort(A)

Scilab gsort can be used as an equivalent for Matlab sort giving it the good inputs. If A is a vector, call gsort(A,"g","i"). If A is a matrix then call gsort(A,"r","i"). Note that gsort does not work with multidimensional arrays.

B = sort(A,dim)

If in Matlab, dim is 1 (respectively 2) then replace it by "r" (respectively "c") in Scilab when calling gsort(A,dim,"i"). Note that gsort does not work with multidimensional arrays.
