I am working on pset3 at the moment and while all problem sets so far had their challanges this one got me a little lost! I implemented search into helpers.c. Now I am supposed to implement sort. But I dont get where? Is it supposed to go under bool search(int value, int values[], int n ? And what is it actually sorting? Maybe it´s because I am not a native speaker but I can´t quite follow the task in this one... Maybe someone can kindly push me in the right direction? Thanks!


sort() will be another function in the program, like search() that goes inside the helpers.c file. It is a separate function, so it should not be placed inside of any of the other functions.

If you don't understand how to create a function, then it will help to review the shorts and class material on the subject.


The helpers.c file will follow the following structure.

// includes go first
#include ....

// function signatures 
return_type function1(parameters);
void function2(...);
int function_x(...);

// functions are next
return_type function1(parameters)
    // function code here

type function2(...)
    // function code here

// ... and so on.

  • I am sorry. I don´t get in. Is it literally going into helpers.c or do I have to open a new file called sort.c??
