    So you have randomly ordered sequence of digits and you want to sort them? If so, convert your number into discrete chunks (either a string or some type of an array), then use your favorite sorting method to sort the numbers into order.

    For a list of differeng sorting methods: Sorting algorithm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (my personal favorite is insertion sort because of it's simplicity and fairly good performance for small data sets)
