sorting code designs

(again, filler for getting my edited post, updated/posted)

so, far I have just done a 'reverse' sort code, but I'll work on getting more types of sorting codes done and posted here

also, others are free/welcome to post their own sorting codes too !!!

here's an example game code for you (I'm not using Pixie's newest version, so let me know if this doesn't work for you):

(the code works, I actually tested it -- I made a lot of stupid mistakes -- took awhile to debug it -- lol, at least with my version of quest... however I manually typed in the code into this post... so... fingers-crossed... HK hopes there's no typos... lol)
