`[B,I] = sort(___) also returns a collection of index vectors for any of the previous syntaxes. I is the same size as A and describes the arrangement of the elements of A into B along the sorted dimension. For example, if A is a vector, then B = A(I).`
Record the index vector when sorting the array, then use the index vector to adjust another array.
