Hi,

the sel sort algorithm takes n^2 time as per the wiki and what is taught generally(pls correct if wrong) .

where each element is checked every time(i:e loop runs n*n times and values are swapped) . but when i modified the code a bit the algo becomes log n and running more efficiently than bubble sort. so is it that the change has changed meaning and its no more selection sort.
