Usage
"sort"(x, decreasing = TRUE, byColumn = 1, ...)

Details

Note that if the associationMatrix contains values of different effectsizes, the sorting may be misleading. For example, a value of Cohen's d of .45 is higher than a value of Pearson's r of .35, and so will end up higher in a 'decreasing' sort - even though the association represented by an r of .35 is stronger than that represented by a d of .45.

Furthermore, only asymmetrical associationMatrices can be sorted; sorting a symmetrical association matrix would also change the order of the columns, after all.

Value

The associationMatrix, but sorted.
