Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning. Rich Cook

Heap sort

Language Java | Level Intermediate | Category Algorithms | August 2, 2015 9:01 pm

Algorithm Problem Description

Heap sort is a comparison-based sorting algorithm and divides the input into a sorted and an unsorted region, and it iteratively shrinks the unsorted region by extracting the largest element and moving that to the sorted region.

Heap sort is not stable sorting. A heap sort is especially efficient for data that is already stored in a binary tree. Heap sort does not take any extra space.

Write a program to implement heap sort.



Unsorted array before sorting: [12, 34, 56, 23, 45, 78, 99]
Sorted array After Heap sorting: [12, 23, 34, 45, 56, 78, 99]
