Multidimensional arrays and sort.

My language is C++. I have a multidimensional vector that I would like to sort by a specific "cell" or "field" within the main vector. Does anyone have any information on how to do this? I have searched all over the internet and every reference manual I can find. So far I have found very little to no information on this topic.

Thank you

seems difficult....I wrote a program to illustrate the situation of a two dimensions array,more dimensions will be more difficult to implement.
typedef struct {
	int a;
	int b;

bool my_sort(EMBED a,EMBED b){
	return a.b > b.b;

int main()
	int a[10][2];
	EMBED embed_a[10];

	for(int i=0;i<10;i++)
		for(int j=0;j<2;j++)
			a[i][j] = rand()%200;
	for(int i=0;i<10;i++){		
		embed_a[i].a = a[i][0];
		embed_a[i].b = a[i][1];
	vector<EMBED> vec(embed_a,embed_a+10);

	for(int i=0;i<10;i++){
		for(int j=0;j<2;j++)
			cout<<a[i][j]<<" ";
	cout<<"============AFTER SORTING==============="<<endl;
	for(vector<EMBED>::const_iterator iter = vec.begin();
								iter != vec.end();iter++)
		cout<<iter->a<<" "<<iter->b<<endl;

	return 0;

Binary sort of a table Fortran V.
Sort table on column 2 then 1.
The order of equal sort keys is not predictable.

10       implicit integer (A-Y)
11      dimension sxlist (8,P2)
12      X0=P2  #P2=1+number of entries
13  10 X0=X0/2
14      if (X0) 15,70,15
15  15 X1=P2-X0
16      X2=1
17  20 X3=X2
18  30 X4=X3+X0
19      if (sxlist(2,X3)-sxlist(2,X4)) 60,45,40
20  45 if (sxlist(1,X3)-sxlist(1,X4)) 60,60,40
21  40 do 50 I-1,8
22       X5=sxlist(I,X3)
23      sxlist(I,X3)=sxlist(I,X4)
24      sxlist(I,X4)=X5
25  50 continue
26     X3=X3-X0
27     if (X3-1) 60,60,30
28  60 X2=X2+1
29    if (X2-X1) 20,20,10
30  70 return
