    Keep variables which store highest and lowest values.

    Loop through each entry and check if it's higher than the previous recorded highest, or lower than the previous recorded lowest.
    You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.

    What have you tried so far? Note the policy on homework.

    I get maybe two dozen requests for help with some sort of programming or design problem every day. Most have more sense than to send me hundreds of lines of code. If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    LOL, it could be homework, but doesnt mean we cant help him. Just you'll have to still do the work.... is a site I found a long time ago about strings you can check out. It will help you get you started and then do what Cat said after you understand what your looking at. Hope that helps.
