    Default Array Sort

    Hello,
    could I ask for an example of a sort for integers in ascending order in an Array?
    I was trying to sort my Array this morning but it wasn't working.
    I know that usually everyone wants to see the code, but I'm at work, so I don't have the code here. So if someone could please provide a generic example, I'd really appreciate it.

    Default Re: Array Sort

    One way to sort a list is to start with two loops. The inner loop compares to what the outer loop is pointing to and swaps the two if necessary. Once the inner loop gets to the end, it starts over and the outer loop goes to the next element in the list. This is known as a bubble sort. It is considered a poor sort in terms of efficiency but is useful for teaching newcomers to programming.

    Note that you can also google sorting and get lots of examples.

    Regards,
    Jim

    Thank you for the reply jim829. I actually did google how to sort, but it wasn't working, which is why I was asking for a generic example. I'll try googleing a bubble sort

    Default Re: Array Sort

    Arrays.sort() will do the trick.

    Example
    int arr[]={33,3,4,5,1};
    Arrays.sort(arr);
    System.out.println(Arrays.toString (arr));
    Whatever you are, be a good one
