Hello everyone, I just wanted to thank you in advance for all of your help.

My code is now working properly except for one thing. The insertion part feels like it takes about 5 minutes to complete. I know that this method is the slowest of the 4

I was wondering if there a problem with the way it was written

My partner wrote this insertion sort function and it does work...but runs very slowly and I am having problems adjusting

it since this code will not work on Visual C++...it will however work on Borland c++

#include <conio.h>

//Function-fills the array with random integers
void getRandomIntegers (long [], long);
//Function-will swap two long integer numbers
void Swap (long &, long &);
//Function-works with HeapSort to rearrange and adjust the heap
void Heapify (long [], long, long);
//Function-will be used with QuickSort to partition array
long Partition (long [], long, long);
//Function-sorts the array using the QuickSort method
void QuickSort (long [], long, long);
//Function-sorts the array using the MergeSort method
void MergeSort (long [], long, long);
//Function will be used with MergeSort to merge array back together.
void Merge (long [], long, long, long);
//Function-sorts the array using the HeapSort method
void HeapSort (long [], long, long);

void Insertion (long [], long, long);
