yeah I hope someone comes here and gives me a reallife implementation mergesort or quicksort or heapsort or some other fancy sorting algorithm

insertion sort works something like this: table: empty hand: unsorted cards put the first card of the deck on the table the top card of the deck is now your key put it in it's appropriate position on the table, comparing it to the single card on the table now the next card is the key compare it righttoleft with the cards on the table, placing it in it's appropriate position on the table (i.e. just after a card that's smaller than it) ... in the end you have a line of sorted cards on the table, so all you do is bundle them up :D Insertion sort is O(n^2) though :(

In real life agd, you wouldn't write a computer program to do it anyway, but do it by hand. What notsmart said sounds smart to me.

Insertion sort, for small n, is relatively efficient and simple, and therefore effective.
