If I want to sort in descending order for exams.at (i).total.at(j)

like this..

the output
1 34
2 56
3 21

and I want to cout the output

2 56
1 34
3 21

Is it must to use bubble sort or radix sort?

#include <iostream>  // std::cout
#include <fstream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <string>    // std::string
#include <vector>    // std::vector<>
#include <algorithm> //std::for each()
using namespace std;// import "std" namespace into global namespace

	struct exam
{
	string examid;
	vector <int> total;
};

	int main() 
	{
	ifstream stream1("STA83SOLUTION.txt");
	if ( !stream1.is_open())
		{
		cout << "While opening a file an error is encountered" << endl;
		} 
			else 
			{
			cout << "Fail Di buka....." << endl;
			}
	vector <exam> exams;
	exam aExam;
    string tempExamID;
    int tempTotal;
    stream1 >> tempExamID >> tempTotal;
    aExam.examid = tempExamID;
    aExam.total.push_back(tempTotal); // add this exam code to current student's vector of exam codes
    while (stream1 >> tempExamID >> tempTotal)
    {
        if(tempExamID != aExam.examid)
        {
        exams.push_back(aExam); // no more exam codes for this student.  Add aStudent to students vector
        aExam.total.clear();
        aExam.examid = tempExamID;
        }
        aExam.total.push_back(tempTotal); // add this exam code to current student's vector of exam codes
    }
    exams.push_back(aExam); // no more exam codes for this student.  Add aStudent to students vector
    stream1.close(); // We have read the entire file, so time to close it.
{
ofstream myfile;
myfile.open("408.txt");
if (myfile.is_open())
{
for (size_t i = 0; i < exams.size(); i++) 
for (size_t j = 0; j<exams.at(i).total.size(); j++) 
{
myfile<<"\n"<<i+1<<":"<<" "<< exams.at (i).total.at(j)<<"\t"; // output list of exam codes for this student
}
}
}
cin.get();
return 0;
}

I do like this but abnormal program........

	struct exam

	int main() 
	{
		ifstream stream1("STA83SOLUTION.txt");
		if ( !stream1.is_open())
		{
		cout << "While opening a file an error is encountered" << endl;
		} 
			else 
			{
			cout << "Fail Di buka....." << endl;
			}
	vector <exam> exams;
	exam aExam;
    string tempExamID;
    int tempTotal;
    stream1 >> tempExamID >> tempTotal;
    aExam.examid = tempExamID;
    aExam.total.push_back(tempTotal); // add this exam code to current student's vector of exam codes
    while (stream1 >> tempExamID >> tempTotal)
    {

			stream1.close(); // We have read the entire file, so time to close it.

				}
			}
cin.get();

}

Fail Di buka.....

abnormal program termination
Press any key to continue

I done something sort like this..but error..anybody can show me where is the mistake?

You can't nest functions like this:

int main()
{
[...]
            void sortit(int exams.at(i).total.at(j), int exams.size())
        {
             [...]
        }
}

un-nest the two functions:

int main()
{
    //do stuff
    some_var = sortit(.... , ... );
}

void sortit(int exams.at(i).total.at(j), int exams.size())        
{            
   //do stuff
  return something;    
}
