typedef int(* sort_t) (const void *a, const void *b, void *sdata)


void mutt_qsort_r (void *base, size_t nmemb, size_t size, sort_t compar, void *sdata)
 Sort an array, where the comparator has access to opaque data rather than requiring global variables.

Function Documentation

◆ mutt_qsort_r()

void mutt_qsort_r ( void *  base,
size_t  nmemb,
size_t  size,
sort_t  compar,
void *  sdata 

Sort an array, where the comparator has access to opaque data rather than requiring global variables.

baseStart of the array to be sorted
nmembNumber of elements in the array
sizeSize of each array element
comparComparison function, return <0/0/>0 to compare two elements
sdataOpaque argument to pass to compar
This implementation might not be re-entrant: signal handlers and compar must not call mutt_qsort_r().
