    Question Sorting problem

    I have an Array foo[50][2][10]

    Basically I have put a list like this in that array:

    Apple 12323
    Banana 1112
    Orange 93
    Car 3432
    Banana 6434
    Apple 8756
    ...
    etc.

    In the first field is the order number, in the second field is either 0 or 1 and in the third field is the Name(0) or the Number(1)
    So then
    foo[0][0] would be Apple
    foo[0][1] would be 12323
    foo[1][0] would be Banana
    ...
    etc.


    What I need to do is sort that array by the number.
    So the list would be:
    Orange 93
    Banana 1112
    Car 3432
    etc...


    I'm stuck and I need help.


    Thank you very much!

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    Nothing that could solve the problem, I'm afraid.

    Well, the way it works here [at least when it comes to homework style questions] is that you post some code, and we help you with figuring out what is wrong or how to get to the next step.
