I've compiled it (with dev-c++), and it runs well.
I just need a few minor things.

1. I need it to sort descendingly, not ascendingly.
2. I need to know how to either print the output, or get the output sent to a word processor so it can be printed.
3. When the output is displayed, is there a way to clear the screen before-hand, so the input is cleared?

--thanks a million, guys.

1. I need it to sort descendingly, not ascendingly.

try rethinking this part of your code:

if( score[i] < score[j] )       
{          
...
}

Lol. Yeah... i feel pretty stupid. =p
I got it though

Do you think you can help with anything else?

Is the printing to a file/Word part of the assignment or just so you can print it out and turn it in?
