Yes, 7am, before I even finished FIRST coffee   :O

All good ideas - I like options.

Anyway, I got that all ... sorted  :D

#macro TimeElapsed (Macro)
 #local Start = now*ms;
 Parse_String (Macro)
 #local End = now*ms;
 #local Elapsed = End-Start;

 Elapsed

#end

and now I just put the macro call in quotes, so it's a string.

#declare Speed = TimeElapsed ("#declare BubbleSorted = BubbleSort
(UnsortedArray)");



Merge sort crashed and burned with only 50 numbers, due to "Too many nested
symbol tables" - so I'll have to figure a way around that, or find some better
code to implement for that one.


I'm now on Shell sort, and behold this abomination:
#for (j = i; j >= gap && arr[j - gap] > temp; j -= gap)

I'm gonna try to divine the true meaning of that, and hopefully code up a
workable SDL version of that mess ... later.


Here's how everything is working so far:

Unsorted Array
5.627, 76.839, 25.256, 92.322, 57.569, 81.538, 25.734, 93.770, 88.249, 82.370,
7.027, 77.468, 47.888, 57.584, 36.548, 35.987, 88.602, 39.002, 60.983, 7.921,
