    Lightbulb bubble sort

    I have the pseudocode for my bubble sort but I have a question?

    Pseudocode:

    IF full array key (start-loc) > full array key (next-loc)
    THEN move full array entry (next-loc) to save entry
    MOVE full array entry (start-loc) to full array entry (next-loc)
    MOVE save entry to full array entry (start-loc)
    ADD 1 to swap -count
    ELSE continue
    END-IF

    How I wrote my source code:

    IF (strcmp(cp[StartLoc].number, cp [NextLoc].number)>0);
    NextLoc= SaveEntry ????(Is the correct?)
    SaveEntry=StartLoc;
    swap-count++;

    Question???????
    Is my source code correct ? If not what do I need to fix?

    What ever happened to just trying something and seeing if it worked or not?

    Go read the Announcements, and in the future, as you'll be told there, use code tags when posting code.

    You have a semi-colon at the end of your if statement, which rather defeats the point of having an if statement at all.

    I'll leave the rest up to you.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
