# numpy.ma.MaskedArray.sort¶

method

`MaskedArray.``sort`(axis=-1, kind='quicksort', order=None, endwith=True, fill_value=None)[源代码]

Sort the array, in-place

Parameters: a : array_like Array to be sorted. axis : int, optional Axis along which to sort. If None, the array is flattened before sorting. The default is -1, which sorts along the last axis. kind : {‘quicksort’, ‘mergesort’, ‘heapsort’, ‘stable’}, optional Sorting algorithm. Default is ‘quicksort’. order : list, optional When a is a structured array, this argument specifies which fields to compare first, second, and so on. This list does not need to include all of the fields. endwith : {True, False}, optional Whether missing values (if any) should be treated as the largest values (True) or the smallest values (False) When the array contains unmasked values at the same extremes of the datatype, the ordering of these values and the masked values is undefined. fill_value : {var}, optional Value used internally for the masked values. If `fill_value` is not None, it supersedes `endwith`. sorted_array : ndarray Array of the same type and shape as a.

Notes

See `sort` for notes on the different sorting algorithms.

Examples

```>>> a = ma.array([1, 2, 5, 4, 3],mask=[0, 1, 0, 1, 0])
>>> # Default
>>> a.sort()
>>> print(a)
[1 3 5 -- --]
```
```>>> a = ma.array([1, 2, 5, 4, 3],mask=[0, 1, 0, 1, 0])
>>> # Put missing values in the front
>>> a.sort(endwith=False)
>>> print(a)
[-- -- 1 3 5]
```
```>>> a = ma.array([1, 2, 5, 4, 3],mask=[0, 1, 0, 1, 0])
>>> # fill_value takes over endwith
>>> a.sort(endwith=False, fill_value=3)
>>> print(a)
[1 -- -- 3 5]
```
