Sort points by distance (Houdini file)

An attempt to sort two groups of points so each point will find its closest pair in the target group, and it works like this:

- first we will reorder the target (you can do the opposite)

- test each point of the source against each point of the target and measure the distance.

- and for each iteration create an array of the distances to those points.

- sort the array so the closest distance is first.

- re order the points based on the distance

- pick it up and delete the rest.

- and so one for the rest of the points.

In case some of the points failed to find a match since all the points are take they will be deleted.

Now do the same steps for the source group.
