SortCompare.java


Below is the syntax highlighted version of SortCompare.java from §2.1 Elementary Sorts.


/******************************************************************************
 *  Compilation:  javac SortCompare.java
 *  Execution:    java SortCompare alg1 alg2 n trials
 *  Dependencies: StdOut.java Stopwatch.java
 *  
 *  Sort n random real numbers, trials times using the two
 *  algorithms specified on the command line.
 * 
 *  % java SortCompare Insertion Selection 1000 100 
 *  For 1000 random Doubles 
 *    Insertion is 1.7 times faster than Selection
 *
 *  Note: this program is designed to compare two sorting algorithms with
 *  roughly the same order of growth, e,g., insertion sort vs. selection
 *  sort or mergesort vs. quicksort. Otherwise, various system effects
 *  (such as just-in-time compiliation) may have a significant effect.
 *  One alternative is to execute with "java -Xint", which forces the JVM
 *  to use interpreted execution mode only.
