Sorts a tensor.

Usage:

a = [1, 10, 26.9, 2.8, 166.32, 62.3]
tf.sort(a).numpy()
array([  1.  ,   2.8 ,  10.  ,  26.9 ,  62.3 , 166.32], dtype=float32)
tf.sort(a, direction='DESCENDING').numpy()
array([166.32,  62.3 ,  26.9 ,  10.  ,   2.8 ,   1.  ], dtype=float32)

For multidimensional inputs you can control which axis the sort is applied along. The default axis=-1 sorts the innermost axis.

mat = [[3,2,1],
       [2,1,3],
       [1,3,2]]
tf.sort(mat, axis=-1).numpy()
array([[1, 2, 3],
       [1, 2, 3],
       [1, 2, 3]], dtype=int32)
tf.sort(mat, axis=0).numpy()
