The sorting algorithm ExtraDix is an extension of the well-known RadixSort (hence its name Extended raDix). It is not based on comparing key values, it is stable and sorts indirectly by first calculating the correct sorting order and only then moving the data records. The algorithm is very fast, there is no best case nor worst case as regards timing, the time necessary for sorting increases directly and in linear fashion with the number of records and the algorithm can be used for all basic data types.
