Summary: Shell Sort generalizes an exchanging sort

, such as insertion or bubble sort,

by starting the comparison and exchange of

elements with elements that are far apart

before finishing with neighboring elements.

Starting with far apart elements can move

some out-of-place elements into position

faster than a simple nearest neighbor

exchange.The idea is to arrange the list

of elements so that, starting anywhere,

considering every hth element gives a sorted list.
