Usage

In any place of your code:

App::uses('ArraySort', 'ArraySort.Utility');

$sorted_array = ArraySort::multisort($array, $params);

where $array is array to sort, $params can be string ('asc' or 'desc') or array like this:

$params = array(
        <field1> => <direction>,
        <field2> => <direction2>,
        ...
);

For example:

$params = array(
        'rank' => 'desc',
        'created' => 'asc'
);

With this $params method will sort $array by comparing each elements firstly by rank field, if they have equal rank then sort by created field.
