function init() {
var elem = document.getElementById('input'),
elemValue = elem.value.split(","),
sampleArr = [1, -1, 4];
elem.value = sortAny(sampleArr);
}
function sortAny(arr) {
var temp,
swap = true;
while (swap == true) {
swap = false;
for (var i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {
if (arr[i] < arr[i+1]) {
temp = arr[i];
arr[i] = arr[i+1];
arr[i+1] = temp;
swap = true;
}
}
}
return '['+arr+']';
}

function sortThree(n,nTwo,nThree) {
var arr = [n,nTwo,nThree],
largest,
secondLargest,
smallest,
lI,
sI;
n > nTwo ? largest = n : largest = nTwo;
largest > nThree ? secondLargest = nThree : secondLargest = largest, largest = nThree;
lI = arr.indexOf(largest), sI = arr.indexOf(secondLargest);
arr.splice(lI,1), arr.splice(sI,1);
smallest = arr[0];
arr.length = 0;
arr.push(largest), arr.push(secondLargest), arr.push(smallest);
return '['+arr+']'
}
})();
</script>

if (parseInt(aArr[i]) < parseInt(bArr[i])) {
return -1
};
if (parseInt(aArr[i]) > parseInt(bArr[i])) {
return 1
};
