I may not be obvious but neither is the sort command. When I start LC I
could not grasp "each" and what it did to what from who, but that's me. I
digress. I can't tell you how many times I've done:

Local tKeys
Put the keys of pArray into tKeys
Sort the lines of tKeys numeric
Repeat for each line tKey in tKeys

. . .  After seven chalkboards of deprivation, the calculus professor
announce, "therefore, A is obviously equal to B"

A student timidly raised her hand, and said, "That's not obvious,

He scrawled three more boards, and triumphantly announced, "See, I told you
it was obvious!"
