The subject matter is well described and a set of methods (with possible some exceptions) will be used to implement all the sorting algorithms in this chapter. That is quite nice because it emphasizes on the concept of hiding data and the actual algorithm from clients.

The following methods are common to all sorting algorithms described in the second chapter: Continue reading “Selection Sort”
