Proper ordering of data has always grabbed the attention of mankind. Researchers have always put forward their ideas for efficient sorting. A new method of sorting a large number of data in an array has been presented which is an iterative approach of sorting. The proposed method calculates an interval value from user input. Avoid repeated successive scan and repeated adjacent swap by comparing at the intervals. Promise to take less time to sort both small and large data than the existing sorting methods.
