For more advanced sorting, such as sorting in descending order or by multiple criteria, you can adjust your comparison function accordingly:
This guide has provided you with a comprehensive understanding of the
By applying the knowledge from this tutorial and leveraging these resources, you'll be well-equipped to tackle array sorting challenges in your future projects. Happy coding!
