QSORT(3)										 QSORT(3)

       qsort - quicker sort

       qsort(base, nel, width, compar)
       char *base;
       int (*compar)( );

       Qsort is an implementation of the quicker-sort algorithm.  The first argument is a pointer
       to the base of the data; the second is the number of elements; the third is the	width  of
       an  element in bytes; the last is the name of the comparison routine to be called with two
       arguments which are pointers to the elements being compared.  The routine must  return  an
       integer	less  than,  equal to, or greater than 0 according as the first argument is to be
       considered less than, equal to, or greater than the second.
