Hello everyone,

I have a small question. I really liked the program "sortrows" . I
wish to ask if anyone has written a similar program for sorting with a
"key".

I mean the following.:=

say I have 4 variables ( in my case I have around a 100 so I cannot
possibly do it in the usual manual bubble sort because it takes
forever)

say a1 a2 key1 key2

I want to say sortrows ( key1 key2)  which will do the usual sortrows
BUT it will also sort the a1 and a2 in the same order ie. if k1 < k2
then a1 < a2 for that row.

Any tips ? Any program which already does this ?

Thank you,
Ashim.
