Re: arange alphabetical

It'd be the same process as Java or python. For each line of code that you wrote for those, work out the instructions needed in assembly to perform the same task. I'm not familiar with regular assembly instructions, but you would load each user input into an address array, then from there just compare the first letter of each as an ASCII character. Compare the following letters if necessary.

I know without using actual example code, that it doesn't help as much, but it's not complicated.

Re: arange alphabetical

In assembler, it might be uncomplicated if he takes the teacher literally and go by first letter of last (or first) name, but to sort outright, even if it's a bubble sort, things could get sticky.

If i were doing it i would first create a proc that could address an array of variable length strings. Each string itself separated by some predetermined sentinel. Null will suffice.

Then after that was working, i begin on a sort, where the destination was a new array. An insertion sort in this case would be ideal.

Once all that i was working, i'd submit it as is.

If the teacher wanted a more efficient sort, he/she should have stated that.
