Hello everyone,

I have a simple code to write.

I have 6 variables v1, v2 , v3, v4 ,v5 , v6.

I want to sort "according to each observation". That is , in the end
for each i I want , v1[i] < = v2[i] <=... v6[i].

So I wrote a simple bubble for each row and then loop from 1 to _N.

Now the problem is that this works but it's VERY VERY slow. Any
comments anyone ?

Thank you guys,
Ashim. : )
