## Introduction

Selection sort is the simplest sorting algorithm in terms of implementation.
Let's consider we have a list of elements i.e. {3, 9, 0, 5, 4 }

a) Selection sort maintains two sublists, one sorted and initially empty and second unsorted sublist i.e.
[ {}, {3, 9 , 0, 5 ,4 }]

b) It searches for the minimum element (for ascending sort) OR for a maximum element( for descending sort) in the unsorted list in each step.

#### Step 1

[ {0 }, {9,3,5,4}]
Minimum element = 0 , swapped with 3

#### Step 2

Minimum element = 3 , swapped with 9
[{0,3) , {9,5,4} ]

#### Step 3

Minimum element = 4 , swapped with 9
[{0,3,4} , {5,9}]

#### Step 4

Minimum element = 5 , swapped with itself
[{0,3,4,5}, {9}]

#### Step 5

Minimum element = 9 , swapped with itself
[{0,3,4,5,9}, {}]

#### Implementation

``````

package main.scala

object SelectionSort {

val array = Array(0, 5, 2, 6, 3, 1)

def main(args: Array[String]) {
print("Unsorted List ")
println(array.toList)
print("Asceding sorted List ")
sortAscending;
println(array.toList)

sortDescending
print("Desceding sorted List ")
println(array.toList)
}

def sortAscending {
for (outer <- 0 until array.length) {
var minimumIndex = outer;
for (inner <- outer + 1 until array.length) {
if (array.apply(minimumIndex) > array.apply(inner)) {
minimumIndex = inner
}
}
swap(minimumIndex, outer)
}
}

def sortDescending {
for (outer <- 0 until array.length) {
var maximumIndex = outer;
for (inner <- outer + 1 until array.length) {
if (array.apply(maximumIndex) < array.apply(inner)) {
maximumIndex = inner
}
}
swap(maximumIndex, outer)
}
}

def swap(minimumIndex: Int, swapIndex: Int) {
var temp = array.apply(minimumIndex)
array.update(minimumIndex, array.apply(swapIndex))
array.update(swapIndex, temp)
}
}

``````
Input   : 3,9, 0, 5 ,4
Output: 0 3 4 5 9 (Ascending)
Output: 9 5 4 3 0 (Descending)
