     I have implemented two of the algorithms 'popular' MSD Radix Sorts based on the implementations done by Peter M. McIlroy and Keith Bostic in their paper Engineering Radix Sort. Of the techniques used were VBSpeed techniques such as safearray 'hacking' and others. These algorithms go extremely fast, about 10x faster than a standard iterative version of a QuickSort algorithm. This is shown the the accompanying benchmark... Please compile to native with all advanced options checked to get best results, but I think it performs pretty well in IDE as well. Updated with TriQuickSort instead of QuickSort. Updated with TriQuickSort fixed+2x faster Updated with TriQuickSort Non-Recursive, rd's strSwapTable, Export to CSV Updated with some GUI changes and Ulli's algos

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
