    Delayed Replacement Sort

    I'm suppost to look up some information and find an example of a delayed replacement sorting function, however, i can't seem to find any information about it. I've searched my textbook and the internet, but i can't seem to find anything. I've found information about the bubble sort, quick sort...but not the delayed replacement sort. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Hint: when using google, you can surround a phrase with double quotes, and google will match that exact phrase.

    Google turned up this: Comparison of sorts. On the later pages there is also an implementation (unfortunately in most unreadable BASIC).

    From the description, it might be a less used name for selection sort?

    I think that was why i was having trouble finding it, because "Selection Sort" is the more common name for it.
    Thank you both for the info.
