ak._v2.ak_sort.sort(array, axis=- 1, ascending=True, stable=True, highlevel=True, behavior=None)

array: Data to sort, possibly within nested lists. axis (int): The dimension at which this operation is applied. The

outermost dimension is 0, followed by 1, etc., and negative values count backward from the innermost: -1 is the innermost dimension, -2 is the next level up, etc.

ascending (bool): If True, the first value in each sorted group

will be smallest, the last value largest; if False, the order is from largest to smallest.

stable (bool): If True, use a stable sorting algorithm (introsort:

a hybrid of quicksort, heapsort, and insertion sort); if False, use a sorting algorithm that is not guaranteed to be stable (heapsort).

highlevel (bool): If True, return an ak.Array; otherwise, return

a low-level ak.layout.Content subclass.

behavior (None or dict): Custom ak.behavior for the output array, if


# For example,

# >>> ak.sort(ak.Array([[7, 5, 7], [], [2], [8, 2]])) # <Array [[5, 7, 7], [], [2], [2, 8]] type=’4 * var * int64’> #
