anyone know how to use bubble sort and also binary search ?
this program cannot search out the name that user insert.
anyone know how to fix it ?

Yes, to both questions. When inserting a new element into a sorted list (vector/array), don't just add it to bottom and try to re-sort the array. It is MUCH more efficient to find the position that it should be inserted in, move all the rest down one element (possibly requiring a reallocation of the array), and inserting it there directly. This is called an "insertion sort" algorithm. Bubble sorts are notoriously inefficient, especially when all but one element (or a few elements) are already in sorted order. There are methods that minimize this overhead, such as placing new elements (as you do) at the end of the array, but keeping track of the number of sorted elements, so a binary search which doesn't find the target will then go to the new elements and linearly search those. In such an algorithm, when the number of unsorted elements at the bottom of the array reach some maximum number, then the array is re-sorted and that is reset to 0.

Sorting and Searching - see the definitive Knuth volume on that (Google search appropriate here).
