im getting an error cannot convert 'int' to 'double' for argument '1' to 'double sort Array(double'.int)' while trying to debug code
what does that mean here is another copy of my code now.

those functions sort double arrays, not int arrays. Either change your int arrays to double, or change the functions to sort int arrays. The two can not be mixed.

>>double sortArray(double [], int);
this is the wrong prototype. Actual function does not have those parameters.

>>ok i changed that to match and now its giving me some more issues heres my code

what where the errors? did you make any attempt to fix them?

yeah i changed showValue and sortValue back to a void and changed the int to doubles i guess thats why im getting the error message:

invalid types `double*[double]' for array subscript

Here's a working solution. Ok what I did is:
1. Changed the sort algorithm from bubble to selection sort, passing the array in by reference.
2. Changed both sortArray and ShowArray functions to void, the needn't be double, they dont return anything.
3. Changed the count variable from 0 to 1 and used count instead of (count+1) in the loop at the beginning.
4. Changed the spacing and some minor things you prob wont even notice.
Study this code and try to understand it. It might not be exactly what you're looking for but it works fine. If you want, change back the sorting algorithm you had but that's up to you. Hope this helps, byee
