Uses first node's key as the pivot. Traverses forward through the list using two references called aNode and aNodePrev. Nodes with a key value greater than or equal to the pivot are ignored. When a node containing a lesser key is encountered, the code deletes aNode by connecting aNodePrev.next to aNode.next. Then aNode is pushed onto the front of the list, becoming the new first node and the remaining nodes of the list are traversed or transferred to the front in the same manner. At the end of this process, the list is divided into two sublists, which can be recursivly sorted by applying this partitioning procedure to each sublist.

//Singly Linked List Quicksort private Node QuickSort(Node before, Node first, int n) { int Num1=0, Num2=n, i=1; Node Pivot=first, aNode=first, aNodePrev=first; // Pivot Advancement for (i=1; i<n; i++, aNode=aNode.next) { if (aNode.compareTo(aNode.next) > 0) break; if ((i&1)==0) { //every other time through the loop Pivot=Pivot.next; Num1++; } } //Recognize sortedness in linear time if (i == n) return first; //Pivot advanced through entire list and found it to be aleady sorted // Partition list by unlinking nodes with values less // than the pivot and pushing them onto front of list for (aNodePrev = aNode; i < n; i++) { aNodePrev.next = aNode.next; if (Pivot.compareTo(aNode) > 0) { aNode.next = first; first = aNode; Num1++; } else aNodePrev = aNode; } if (before!=null) before.next = first; Num2 = n - Num1 - 1; // Recurse to sort sublists if (Num1 > 1) first = QuickSort(before, first, Num1); if (Num2 > 1) QuickSort(Pivot, Pivot.next, Num2); return first; )
