Hi Bob,

Yes, I was looking into the binary sort idea.  It’s too bad that
isn’t just a built-in function for LC.  I’m not sure it’s worth
that kind of effort for my particular case.

I have looked up on the interwebs to calculate the maximum number of iterations for a given number of values, but it seems that all the formulas offered up use functions for C. I am trying to figure out what a basic math formula for this is, given n values.
