# void qsort

void qsort(void *__base, size_t __nmemb, size_t __size, __compar_fn_t __compar)

The qsort() function is a modified partition-exchange sort, or quicksort.

The qsort() function sorts an array of nmemb objects, the initial member of which is pointed to by base. The size of each object is specified by size. The contents of the array base are sorted in ascending order according to a comparison function pointed to by compar, which requires two arguments pointing to the objects being compared.

The comparison function must return an integer less than, equal to, or greater than zero if the first argument is considered to be respectively less than, equal to, or greater than the second.
