How To Sort An Array

The same sort function used to sort STL vector can be used for sorting arrays also. Surprised? Sometimes life is easier than we expect. 

#include
#include
using namespace std;

int main()
{  
   int MyArray[] = {10, 9, 8, 7, 6};
   sort(MyArray, MyArray + 5);
   for (int i = 0; i < 5; ++i)    {       cout << MyArray[i] <<'\n';    }    return 0; } [/sourcecode]

    You might like to go into more detail on how this works i.e. iterators

    Otherwise a number of people may copy+paste it without knowing what is going on.

    The sort function works on addresses of containers. Normally we pass the starting object iterator and the ending object iterator + 1 (the end of the vector). An iterator is nothing but an address. We employ the same strategy here.
