    need some quick help

    heya.. I have programming exam tomorrow in C and i've messed up with some notes regrding arrays.. i'm looking for 2 programs basically now .. the first is that how can I display a array in accending order.. for example lets say
    Code:
    arr[6]={22,10,55,9,32,33}
    how do I display this in accending or decending order? all I get from google etc is qsort and bubble sort .. however we are not allowed to use built-in function, i remember last time we did it was something comparision or something.. i totally forgot.. ill be thankful if you can write a program that will do it.. the 2nd thing im looking for is that "a 4 digit number is entered through a keyboard, write a program to reverse it" well i know about the char thing but there's some other logic its like number/100/1000 or something like that.. so if u know about it post it.. thanks .. also i'm confused about array swapping.. like if i have 2 arrays as follows

    Code:
    arr[]={2,3,4,5}
    
    and
    brr[]={3.4.5.6}
    how do i swap their values, like brr should go to arr and arr value should be stored in brr.. i remember the TEMP thing but dunno how exactly to do it, ill be thankful if u can help.. its 9:49 pm here and i have exam tomorrow at 12:15 PM .. and i'll sleep in the next hour so plz hurry and thanks in advance

    Do you know how to make a loop that counts down instead of up?

    for the first question, I guess you just have to do swapping using a nested loop!!
    try something out..

    lol
    Code:
    for (i=0; i>=10; i--)
    if thats what u meant? anyways, if anyone can write the programs for the things i mentioned plz do.. i really need them to analyse the logic before the exam tomorow

    thanks

    That doesn't happen on this board very often. (I know. I have tried )

    EDIT: Looks like this is it. But don't just copy-paste the code, read the whole tutorial.

    so plz dont post anything useless
    Before asking this - you better post something useful yourself.
    Show your attemp and ask question about problems you have encountered...
    Don't just sit and wait till the Santa brings you a Cristmas gift...

    you wrote this for a loop counting down :

    Code:
    for (i=0; i>=10; i--)
    This will not work. First time through, i=0, test the end condition, i=0 which is not >=10 so exit loop.

    The trick is to use a variable in the indexing part when you refer to the array.

    int i;

    arr[i];

    Then you can put it in a loop and just spit out every element that corresponds to the iteration you're in.

    To do it backwards, initialize i to the maximum, then count down until it's zero. To to the forward direction, do it like a regular loop, initialize at zero, and count up until it's at the maximum. See the tutorial on loops for more information: http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial/c/lesson3.html

    Feel free to use more than one loop.

    {
    printf("%d", order);
    }
    or what, im totaly confused ;\ just 3 hours left for exam.. i request pleas to paste the complete logic for pasting that array into accending order, ill be thankful

    {
    printf("&#37;d", order);
    }
    Trace through that for loop.

    i=1, 1<=5 so do loop. decrement i, now i=0.
    i=0, 0 <=5 so do loop. decrement i, now i=-1.
    i=-1, -1 <=5 so do loop. decrement i, now i=-2.

    See a pattern? Infinite loop.

    manav lol haha you were right :P anyway I think I did well in the paper.. here are a few objectives I just want to know if they are correct..

    Choose the correct

    1)If Var is an integer variable var = 5/2 will return a value
    a)2.5
    b)3
    3)2
    d)0

    2)Minimum value that an integer constant can have is
    a)0
    b)-32767
    c)32767
    d)1.701e+38

    3)A C Variable cannot start with
    a)An Alphabet
    b)A Number
    c)A Special symbol except underscore
    d)Both b & c

    4)C Program is converted to machine language with the help of
    a)An Editor
    b)An Operating system
    c)A Compiler
    d)none of the above

    5)A Pointer is a special variable which can only store
    a)Another pointer
    b)Integer values
    c)Addresses
    d)All of the above

    I ticked option "c" in 1 .. option "b" in 2nd .. option "d" in 3rd .. option "c" in 4th and option "c" in 5th..

    and now true false

    1)Each new C instruction has to b e written on seperate line
    2) Blank spaces cannot be inserted within a variable name
    3)An Integer constant in C must have atleast one decimal point
    4)Output of the instruction 'a' + 10 is 75
    5) 3+a=10 is not a valid C statement

    I did
    1) True
    2)True
    3)False
    4)true
    5)True

    .. these objections carried 10 marks.. please tell me if all the options i choosed were correct if not pls let me know? thanks.
