New sorting algorithm: mkdir sort

github logo ・1 min read

A little sorting algorithm I made just for fun.

#!/bin/bash
function f() {
    echo $(eval printf 'g/%.0s' {1.."$1"})"$1" | xargs mkdir -p
}

while [ -n "$1" ]
do
    f "$1"
    shift
done

find . -type d | sed 's#.*/##' | grep -v g

#./mkdirsort.sh 9 2 7 4 6

It's like a "b-tree sort" using the FS
