    The only similarity is that both are used for searching.

    Key to the binary search is that data must be sorted. It allows a search to take place by successive halving resulting in a time complexity of O(log N) which is much faster than the O(N) of a linear search.

    The quick and dirty way is to convert the list into an array which is then sorted using a standard array sorting algorithm. Then a new list is built from the sorted array and the old list is deleted.

    This is for example how the Java standard library does it.
