Selection Sort, the Basic Sorting Algorithm

Written by Raza. Posted in C++

selection sort algorithm c++

 

Selection sort is one of the basic sorting Algorithms. It is pretty simple to understand and very good to implement on small amount of data. However, it becomes quite inefficient when working with large lists.  

Selection Sort uses the concept of in-place sorting. It means that the data is sorted by shuffling it within the list. First I shall try to explain the algorithm and then together we would try to carve out of it a basic source code.
