How it Works

I adapted code built by Leonid Shevtsov called Monkey Sort. It works by usng a quicksort algorithm to fill a matrix of comparisons. Whenever the algorithm does not know the relative ranking of two items, it asks the user until the matrix is complete. The beauty of this program is that it minimizes the number of questions asked to the user.
