Hey ppl I need some help I want to know what is the correct source code for sorting numbers say I entered num1,num2,num3,num4 and num5 what would the correct source code be to sort them in ascending order help plz

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 In case, you have some trouble, G4E help is just a post away.

....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=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
