O

You should say what the code is about, what is it supposed to do? What is there to sort and where to search in? I'm not gonna spend much time looking through code finding what the real problem actually is. You should describe the problem better.

And you really should indent it. I personally think it's just so much easier to understand for outsiders of your code.

Here's a better explantion. Thanks!
This part"A" is already finished:

A). Create a menu with the following options, (1) Add, (2) Update, (3) Delete, (4) Sort, (5) Print, and (6) Quit.
Create an array of 10 strings up to 25 characters long and initialize each one to "none". Each item will represent a first name.
Create an array of function pointers to each of the above menu options. When the user selects an option call the appropriate function using this array.
Pass the string array to each of the functions as a parameter.
Use a bubble sort to sort the items.
Display the array when the user selects a menu item (except Sort, Print, and Quit) and then prompt the user for the nmnber (use the array subscript) of the item they want to operate on.
When deleting a name set it back to "none".
When deleting a name first confirm that the user wants to continue with the delete.

This is part"B" which has been added:
B). //I need to modify this code by changing the(existing) sort function to make it recursive
//and add a recursive binary search that prompts the user to enter a search item.
//I have added some code for the search, which I will mark with
// :?: commented out on previous line. Please help finsh with recursion. I'm lost.
//:mrgreen: denotes sort section
The sort is set up now to sort the array in alphabetacle order according the fletter of fname. The search would need to search the sorted array.
