//the lowest value of each comparision.

int i=l, j=m;
while(out.size() <= r-l) {
if (j>r || vals[i]<vals[j])
else if (i>=m || vals[j]<vals[i])
for(int n=0; n<out.size(); n++)
vals[l+n] = out[n];
template<class T>
void merge_sort(std::vector<T>& vals, int l, int r) {
if (r-l < 1)
int m = (l+r+1) / 2;

merge_sort(vals, m, r);
merge(vals, l, m, r);
template<class T>
void merge_sort(std::vector<T>& vals) {
