    bubble sort program using dev-c++


    In this program example we have defined a function for implementation of bubble sort. This function taking array and size of array as input. In function we declare two variables i and j as counter variables and the third variable temp as temporary variable for swapping vales if these values are not in proper order.

    After declaration of variables we use nested loop for traversal of array and swapping elements if these are not in proper order.

    In if statement we use > (greater than symbol) for sorting values in Ascending order. Alternatively we will have to use < (less than symbol) for sorting values in Descending order.

    In main() function we declare one variable of int data type as counter variable and initialized an array of 8 elements with random values. After this declaration process we print values before sorting and then call bubblesort function and then again print values of array.
