The ripple sort is another name for the bubble sort. The bubble sort is most likely the first and most involved module that every new programmer will have to develop. It’s a really basic concept that teaches the pupil the principles of how sorting works.
An array and some form of “swapping” process are used in a bubble sort. To swap elements of an array, most computer languages include a built-in function. Even if a swapping function does not exist, storing one array element in a temporary field and swapping a second element into its place requires only a few more lines of code. Then the first element is moved out of the temporary field and back into the array at the second element’s position.
