Description:

ValuesLessThanOrEqual( list; reference) returns a list of all values in list that are less than or equal to reference by comparing the first value; then concatenating all other values less than or equal to reference with a recursive call to itself.

ValuesLessThanOrEqual() is used by QuickSort( list) to separate out values that are less than or equal to a particular "pivot" value.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

The equals part isn't quite working. For example, with the following you only get "friday". If you add a blank space after the reference such as "mon " then it also matches "mon".
ValuesLessThanOrEqual ( "mon¶monday¶friday¶saturday" ; "mon" )
