QSORT(3)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		      QSORT(3)

NAME
       qsort - sorts an	array

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<stdlib.h>

       void qsort(void *base, size_t nmemb, size_t size,
		  int(*compar)(const void *, const void	*));

DESCRIPTION
       The  qsort()  function sorts an array with nmemb	elements of size size.
       The base	argument points	to the start of	the array.

       The contents of the array are sorted in ascending order according to  a
       comparison  function pointed to by compar, which	is called with two ar-
       guments that point 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 respec-
       tively less than, equal to, or greater than the second.	If two members
       compare as equal, their order in	the sorted array is undefined.

RETURN VALUE
       The qsort() function returns no value.
