Examples

Sort rows by column precedence

const a = [4,0,1;
           2,1,9;
           1,3,0;
           2,1,0]
	  
sortRows(a,columnPrecedence) = a[sortRowIndices(a[0:nRows(a)-1,columnPrecedence]),0:nColumns(a)-1]

// sort by column 1
const b = sortRows(a,1) // [4,0,1;
                        //  2,1,9;
                        //  2,1,0;
                        //  1,3,0]

// sort by column 1, then column 0, then column 2
const c = sortRows(a,[1,0,2]) // [4,0,1;
                              //  2,1,0;
                              //  2,1,9;
                              //  1,3,0]
