public class QuickSort
    public static List<int> Sort(List<int> xs)
        if (!xs.Any())
            return xs;

        var index = xs.Count() / 2;
        var x = xs[index];
        var left = Sort(xs.Where(v => v <= x).ToList());
        var right = Sort(xs.Where(v => v > x).ToList());
        return left.Append(x).Concat(right).ToList();

    public static void ErrorAndExit()
        Console.WriteLine("Usage: please provide a list of at least two integers to sort in the format \"1, 2, 3, 4, 5\"");

    public static void Main(string[] args)
        if (args.Length != 1)
            var xs = args[0].Split(',').Select(i => Int32.Parse(i.Trim())).ToList();
            if (xs.Count() <= 1)
            var sortedXs = Sort(xs);
            Console.WriteLine(string.Join(", ", sortedXs));
