    Sorting Problem

    Hello there, i am trying to create a league table within a program, the teams points are located within individual data structs though. Can anyone help, I want the team with the most points on top , followed by the second most points ect. But i also want to output the team name alongside it.

    Thanks

    Code:
         
    
         cout<<UserTeam.Teamname<<"\t "<<UserTeam.Leaguepoints<<endl;
         cout<<Oppositionteam1.Teamname<<"\t "<<Oppositionteam1.Leaguepoints<<endl;
         cout<<Oppositionteam2.Teamname<<"\t\t "<<Oppositionteam2.Leaguepoints<<endl;
         cout<<Oppositionteam3.Teamname<<"\t "<<Oppositionteam3.Leaguepoints<<endl;
         cout<<Oppositionteam4.Teamname<<"\t\t "<<Oppositionteam4.Leaguepoints<<endl;
         cout<<Oppositionteam5.Teamname<<"\t "<<Oppositionteam5.Leaguepoints<<endl;
    Userteam and Oppoisition teams are individual data structs.

    I'm a new programmer so go easy

    In a nutshell:
    1. Create a container to store data for your individual teams (an array or vector of structs for example).
    2. Define operator< (less than) for your team structs.
    3. Call the std::sort function.
    4. Print contents of newly sorted container from start to finish.

    Probably less detail than you want... but lets see what you can make of that as a starting point.
    "Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods."
