Functional Details


specifies the field or list to be sorted.

If the parameter is a scalar list, its values must be scalars or 1-vectors. If the parameter is a field, the sorting is performed on the "data" component; other components are reordered and renumbered as appropriate.


specifies the order of sorting: descending (0) or ascending (1).


The "data" and data-dependent components are reordered according to their data values. Similarly, components on which data depends are reordered. Components that reference reordered components are renumbered.
