type Comparator

type Comparator interface {
	// Compare will return a value indicating how this comparator
	// compares with the provided comparator.  A negative number
	// indicates this comparator is less than the provided comparator,
	// a 0 indicates equality, and a positive number indicates this
	// comparator is greater than the provided comparator.
	Compare(Comparator) int

    Comparator defines items that can be sorted. It contains a single method allowing the compare logic to compare one comparator to another.

    type Comparators

    type Comparators []Comparator

      Comparators defines a typed list of type Comparator.

      func MultithreadedSortComparators

      func MultithreadedSortComparators(comparators Comparators) Comparators

        MultithreadedSortComparators will take a list of comparators and sort it using as many threads as are available. The list is split into buckets for a bucket sort and then recursively merged using SymMerge.

        func SymMerge

        func SymMerge(u, w Comparators) Comparators

          SymMerge will perform a symmetrical merge of the two provided lists. It is expected that these lists are pre-sorted. Failure to do so will result in undefined behavior. This function does make use of goroutines, so multithreading can aid merge time. This makes M*log(N/M+1) comparisons where M is the length of the shorter list and N is the length of the longer list.

          func (Comparators) Len

          func (c Comparators) Len() int

            Len returns an int indicating the length of this list of comparators.

            func (Comparators) Less

            func (c Comparators) Less(i, j int) bool

              Less returns a bool indicating if the comparator at index i is less than the comparator at index j.

              func (Comparators) Swap

              func (c Comparators) Swap(i, j int)

                Swap swaps the values at positions i and j.
