Quicksort Algorithm Example in Rust

Last Updated on

This post is about an example of the Quicksort algorithm in Rust.

Functions for Quicksort Algorithm Codes

Our example uses 3 functions – swap, partition, and quick_sort.

The Swap Function

The swap function exchanges the values between 2 elements in an array.

The Partition Function

This Rust function picks a pivot index of an array or subarray. The quick_sort function uses that index to further break down the array at each recursion.

The quick_sort Function

These are the key Rust codes and the function is recursive. It uses the swap and partition functions.

Algorithm Demo Example


Tested with Rust 1.38.0.
