-- Bubblesort using access to procedure parameters
-- This package provides a bubble sort routine that works with access to
-- subprogram parameters, so that it can be used with different types with
-- shared sorting code. It is considered obsoleted by GNAT.Bubble_Sort which
-- offers a similar routine with a more convenient interface.
package GNAT.Bubble_Sort_A is
pragma Preelaborate;
-- The data to be sorted is assumed to be indexed by integer values from
-- 1 to N, where N is the number of items to be sorted. In addition, the
-- index value zero is used for a temporary location used during the sort.
type Move_Procedure is access procedure (From : Natural; To : Natural);
-- A pointer to a procedure that moves the data item with index From to
-- the data item with index To. An index value of zero is used for moves
-- from and to the single temporary location used by the sort.
type Lt_Function is access function (Op1, Op2 : Natural) return Boolean;
-- A pointer to a function that compares two items and returns True if
-- the item with index Op1 is less than the item with index Op2, and False
-- if the Op2 item is greater than or equal to the Op1 item.
procedure Sort (N : Natural; Move : Move_Procedure; Lt : Lt_Function);
-- This procedures sorts items in the range from 1 to N into ascending
-- order making calls to Lt to do required comparisons, and Move to move
-- items around. Note that, as described above, both Move and Lt use a
-- single temporary location with index value zero. This sort is not
-- stable, i.e. the order of equal elements in the input is not preserved.
