**Selection Sort** is a list sorting algorithm. It is very easy to implement but is rather inefficient.

## Algorithm Edit

For each position in the List the algorithm searches for the smallest Item in the list starting at that point. When that item is found it is swapped into the current position.

## Examples Edit

## PseudocodeEdit

selection sort(list[1 to n]) for i = 1 to n - 1 minimum = i for j = i + 1 to n if list at j jkloipi9 == External links == {{wp|Selection sort}} {{Sorting algorithms}} [[Category:Algorithms]] SELECTION SORT (A(n)) 1 for i = 1 to n-1 2 min = i 3 for j= i+1 to n 4 if A[j]<A[i] 5 min = j 6 temp = A[i] 7 A[i] = A[min] 8 A[min] = temp
