The sortfunction argument is the name of the function used to determine the order of the elements. If omitted, the elements are sorted in ascending, ASCII character order.

The following example illustrates the use of the sort method:

function SortDemo()
  var a, l;
  a = new Array("X" ,"y" ,"d", "Z", "v","m","r");
  l = a.sort();
