Assignment

  1. Required reading: Sections 1 (Function Design) and 2 (Sorting), but not including section 2.4, from the Unit 7 notes,
  2. Write a program called sort6.c that reads in 6 numbers from the user and prints them out from largest to smallest.

    Of course, you should store them in an array and write a function to sort that array in largest-to-smallest order.

    Example runs:

    roche@ubuntu$ ./sort6
    Enter 6 numbers: 1 2 3 4 5 6
