Thanks everybody for the detailed help.

Especially LanX' version is great, basically 6 lines of codes are doing the job and validating the input at the same time.

Thanks a lot!!!

Just one more question:

Is it possible to combine different types of rules in this algorithm?

A not after B" B after C
Thanks
Axel

    Well not A > B is equivalent to B >= A.

    But the B == A part - i.e. B and A belong to the same phase - must be ignored, otherwise one risks that A comes after B in the unsorted output of a phase.

    So translating to B > A should be safe, w/o loss of solutions.

    Just modify the parser to translate different rules accordingly.

    HTH! =)
