Function sortrows - sorting strings, MATLAB in Statistics

function sortrows - sorting strings:

The function sortrows sorts each and every row as a block, or group, and it also will work on numbers. Here in this illustration the rows starting with 3 and 4 are placed first then, for the rows starting with 5, the values in the second column (6 and7) determine the order.

>> mat = [5 7 2; 4 6 7; 3 4 1; 5 6 2]

mat =

5 7 2

4 6 7

3 4 1

5 6 2

>> sortrows(mat)

ans =

3 4 1

4 6 7

5 6 2

5 7 2
