Sorting visualised with traditional folk dancing

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/08

Some really cool YouTube videos below nicely visualise different sorting algorithms are in the playlist below.

They are an extension of https://www.youtube.com/user/AlgoRythmics/videos

It impressed me more than the audible playlist I wrote about in Fun to watch/listen to: Sorting Algorithms (slower, grouped and ordered) – YouTube, likely because the various steps in each sorting algorithm are much more clear.

To me it’s also more entertaining than Sorting | Visual.ly, even though the latter even more clearly show the various operations in a sorting algorithm.

Not all algorithms are covered; https://www.toptal.com/developers/sorting-algorithms/ has many more of them and to my surprise, Heap Sort beats Quick and Quick3 sort on various distributions.

Discussing sorting seems a never ending story…

Thanks Stefan Glienke for posting this a while ago:

If you ever wonder why you get no (or incomplete) RTTI from a control that you inherited from a DevExpress one – then look into cxVer.inc where it has the following lines:

{$IFNDEF CXTEST}
{$WEAKLINKRTTI ON}
{$RTTI EXPLICIT METHODS([]) FIELDS([]) PROPERTIES([])}
{$ENDIF}

+Martin Wienold was wondering (and so was I at first) why he could not properly resolve a form from the DI container that inherited from TdxRibbonForm despite writing a public method with [Inject] attribute on it but it was never called.

Warning: If you are using DevExpress or any other source code that does this (changing the $RTTI directive) and build these sources together with your application (in contrast to using precompiled dcus or even packages) on a version <XE6 then you might suffer from this issue: [WayBack] #79943: {$ RTTI} flag scope which causes RTTI to disappear even from units that did not have the $RTTI in them.
