    Suppose it were only necessary that the elements in an array be in their correct quartiles; that is, the lowest valued 25 percent of the elements are in the first 25 percent of the array elements, the next 25 percent by value in the  in the next 25 percent of the elements and so on. Can anyone suggest an efficient method for accomplishing this partial sorting.

    Isn't this the same as just ordering the array elements lowest to highest, or have I missed the point ? If so, suggest a simple bubble sort but depends on how many elements are in the array. May also be worth consider STL (if your using VS C++) as this provides some good element list handling including sorting routines.

    The first word should read "isn't" - some strange character conversion going on I think !
