If that's the problem I have several sort routines I wrote some 10+
years back. They are generic, object-oriented, written in C and long
while debugged (oh, and rather easy to use, by the way). I can mail
the sort library if you so wish. It contains a good number of routines
for most imaginable situations (even a merge-sort for space short
scenarios, but I believe that's one of the less used and tested).
