I have to write a program that that reads an array of integer numbers, stores them in array, sort the numbers in ascending order, and print the sorted array: using the buble sort technique.

Unfortunately I can't seem to get it to work at all, and I know <stdio.h> is probably not efficient but thats what we're supposed to use. This is my first programming class, and any help would be greatly appreciated.


I'm sorry its so horribly written:

#include <stdio.h>
#define N 5

int main ()
{
    int array[N], temp, i, j;
    
    
    printf("please enter 5 numbers to be sorted\n");
    
    
    scanf("%i \n", &array[i]);
       
        
        for(i=0; i<N; i++ ) 
                 {for(j=0; j < N-1; j++){
                        if (array[j] > array[j+1])
                        {temp=array[j];
                        array[j]=array[j+1];
                        array[j+1]=temp;
                                        }
                 
                                         }
                       printf("%i\n", array[i]);
                        }
                   
                   
                   
                   
                      
     
    
    return 0;
    
    
    
    
}

Why are you printing in the middle of the sort? Don't you need to sort then print the sorted list?

I'm sorry its so horribly written:

Then read this and don't write horrible code anymore :icon_wink:

here i have sorted array to ascending order :)

#include <iostream.h>
#include <conio.h>

const int n=5;

void main(){

	int a[n],l, j, t;

   cout <<  "Enter the no. to be sorted in ascending order.";
    		for (l=0; l<n; l++)
         	cin >> a[l];

	for(l=0; l<n; l++)
   	for(j=l; j<n; j++)
      	if(a[l] > a[j])
          {
         	t=a[l];
            a[l]=a[j];
            a[j]=t;
           }
                  cout << "sorted array is ";
         for(l=0; l<n; l++)
          cout << a[l]  ;
      
getch();
}

Poorly formatted non-compliant code. Plus, you did the OP's homework for them, big no-no.

is my print still in the wrong loop?
cause, it still doesn't seem to be printing any results at all, and i'm not sure I'm following the loop correctly...

#include <stdio.h>

#define N 5



int main ()

{

    int array[N], temp, i, j;  //temp is the place holder for the numbers as it sorts them

    

    
    

    	printf("please enter 5 numbers to be sorted\n");

    
	for (i=0; i<n; i++)

                  scanf("%i \n", &array[i]);  //defines i

       

        

        for(i=0; i<N; i++ )  // sets i as a number entered

                 {for(j=i; j < N; j++){        // the program sorts through numbers within a loop overuntil its in order

                        if (array[i] > array[j])

                        {temp=array[i];

                        array[i]=array[j];

                        array[j]=temp;

                                       }  

                 

                                         }

                       

                        }

                   

                   

                   

                   

                      

     

 printf("%i\n", array[i]);    // prints the final results

    return 0;

    

    

    

    

}

look at your loop. Its not being update.

for(i=0; i<N-1; i++ ) { {for(j=i; j < N; j++){

and at last while you trying to execute the sorted value it also should be loop.

for(i=0; i<N; i++)

    printf("%i ", array[i]); // prints the final results

Come on!!! Format your code properly! Still can't read it.
