    Red face Sorting help for newbie

    I am very new to programming. I am trying to use STL sorting (#include<algorithm>) to sort an array alphabetically, but it is not working.
    Here's my code:

    Code:
    char num[]="F A C B D E G";
    sort(num,num+7);
    for (int i=0;i<7;i++)
    cout<<num[i]<<" ";
    What am I doing wrong???

    There are thirteen characters in your array (not counting the null). Remove the spaces between the characters.
