    I Need to write a function using C wherein I should do the following:
    (i) The function will receive a string in a character pointer
    (ii) This string will adhere to the following structure:
    "Kentucky+New York+Arizona+Nevada"
    The number of states can differ from 4 to 50
    The delimiter between States can differ from '+' to ',', hence I would like to pass
    the delimiter to the function.
    (iii) This string should then be sorted alphabetically from left to right.
    The above example would then become:
    "Arizona+Kentucky+Nevada+New York"
    (iv) This string needs to be returned from the function using a character pointer.
    Please help me in this.
