Input the name of ONE PROGRAM PER LINE, then click "Begin Sorting"! You will be presented choices one at a time until the algorithm has enough information to create your rank list.
Total number of comparisons needed:
This tool is designed to eliminate decision paralysis. By breaking down the list into individual decisions, you can avoid overwhelming possibilities and focus on one choice at a time.
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.
