Here you can find the source of sortTwoArrays( A[] firstArray, B[] secondArray)

Parameter | Description |
---|---|

firstArray | The first array, which contains the values to sort |

secondArray | The second array, which will be sorted based on the values in the first array |

A | < > The type of element in the first array |

B | < > the type of element in the second array |
