SORTROWS: Stata program to perform sort within observation
Jeffrey Arnold ()
Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics
sortrows sorts a variable list within each observation (row). Unlike rowsort, sortrows operates on vectors, and is faster than looping through observations. It can sort both numeric and string variables, and allows for either the replacement of the existing variables, or the generation of a new variable list.
