I'm stuck trying to implement a sorting algorith...and i also would like to know. is the swap function necessary since i have a sorting function?

Depends on the sorting algorithm. Some sorting algorithms require a swap function as a helper function, some do not. You would likely call your swap function from your sort function rather than from main directly. It all depends on which sort you use. Here are some sorts.
