    else {
         pivot = list[0];
         concat(quicksort(($ in list if $ < pivot)), pivot, quicksort(($ in list if $ > pivot)));

// define method to concatenate lists.
def concat(list1, pivot, list2) {
    concatList = new ArrayList(list1);

// create a list to sort
list = [5,2,4,1,18,10,15,1,0];

// sort it!
