Well there are lots of sorting algorithms, the easiest being Bubble Sort, which is easy to implement in any programming language.
Checkout this thread for details of a few sorting algorithms http://www.go4expert.com/showthread.php?t=337

....the easiest being Bubble Sort( but worse time complexity), which is easy to implement in any programming language.

That's right! But, for someone who is new to sorting algorithms Bubble Sort is the easiest to understand and implement.

well i think selection sort isbest for beginners in dat u dont have to bother to check which is smallest
i m giving code for it
if the nos are stored in an array' a'
a[i]=num[k]
i varies from 0 to 4 nd k varies from 1 to 5
Code:
#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
main()
{
int a[5],t,min,i,j;   \\considering all no. entered to be integer type
printf("\n please enter 5 no")  \\here u enter your 5 numbers
for( i=0;i<5;i++)
scanf("%d",&a[i]);
\\ now the sorting part

for(i=0;i<5;i++)
for(j=i+1;j<5;j++)
if(a[i]>a[j]){t=a[i];
                  a[i]=a[j];
                  a[j]=t;
                 }
\\ now to print the sorted array    
for(i=0;i<5;i++)
printf("\n %d"a[i]);


getch();
}
\\ yah dats it
