PHP Searching and Sorting Algorithm: Bead sort

PHP Searching and Sorting Algorithm: Exercise-13 with Solution

Write a PHP program to sort a list of elements using Bead sort.

Sample Solution :

PHP Code :

<?php
function columns($my_array) {
    if (count($my_array) == 0)
        return array();
    else if (count($my_array) == 1)
        return array_chunk($my_array[0], 1);
     array_unshift($my_array, NULL);
    // array_map(NULL, $my_array[0], $my_array[1], ...)
    $transpose = call_user_func_array('array_map', $my_array);
    return array_map('array_filter', $transpose);
}
function bead_sort($my_array) {
    foreach ($my_array as $e)
        $poles []= array_fill(0, $e, 1);
    return array_map('count', columns(columns($poles)));
}
$test_array = array(3, 2, 5, 4, 1, 100);
echo "\nOriginal Array :\n";
echo implode(', ',$test_array );
echo "\nSorted Array :\n";
echo implode(', ',bead_sort($test_array)). PHP_EOL;

?>

Sample Output:

Original Array                                                      
:3, 2, 5, 4, 1, 100                                                 
Sorted Array :                                                      
100, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
