PS6: working on taking words and turning them into sorted strings.
The words start as strings. One option is to convert the string to list using the list function, so I can use the linear selection sort. I'm having trouble converting my list back to a string though.
If I'm only working with immutable strings, it seems like I have to use a quadratic sort algorithm. Did anyone come up with a different approach?
