All Implemented Interfaces:

public class Sort
extends GeneralFilterFunction

This class implements the saxon:sort() extension functions.

The first argument is a sequence S, the second a function F (defaulting to fn:data). The function returns the item or items I in the input sequence S sorted on the result of F(I). It is not possible to specify a collation; the default collation is used when comparing strings.
