I would use ORDER BY in your query and let the database do the work, assuming you're using a standard relational database (like MySQL or Postgresql).

Otherwise, if you MUST do it in PHP, you could look at usort(), or uasort() using your own custom sorting function. I would, however, strongly recommend keeping the work in the database. (If you're using a bleeding-edge version of PHP (I think this is in the 5.5 release candidates), you could also use array_column() along with usort() or uasort() to make your life easier.)

I have a bookseller database list read into a PHP array with dimensions
[row][field]. There are 32 fields in each record/row and up to 500 records.

What is the neatest way to sort the array by any of the fields, such as
author or title?

I know I should just search for a manual on this, but could anybody give me
a quick start?
