Bubble Sort Program in C

We shall see the implementation of bubble sort in C programming language here.

Implementation in C

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdbool.h>

#define MAX 10

int list[MAX] = {1,8,4,6,0,3,5,2,7,9};

void display() {
   int i;
   printf("[");
	
   // navigate through all items 
   for(i = 0; i < MAX; i++) {
      printf("%d ",list[i]);
   }
	
   printf("]\n");
}

void bubbleSort() {
   int temp;
   int i,j;
	
   bool swapped = false;
   
   // loop through all numbers 
   for(i = 0; i < MAX-1; i++) { 
      swapped = false;
		
      // loop through numbers falling ahead 
      for(j = 0; j < MAX-1-i; j++) {
         printf("     Items compared: [ %d, %d ] ", list[j],list[j+1]);

         // check if next number is lesser than current no
         //   swap the numbers. 
         //  (Bubble up the highest number)
			
         if(list[j] > list[j+1]) {
            temp = list[j];
            list[j] = list[j+1];
            list[j+1] = temp;

            swapped = true;
            printf(" => swapped [%d, %d]\n",list[j],list[j+1]);
         } else {
            printf(" => not swapped\n");
         }
			
      }

      // if no number was swapped that means 
      //   array is sorted now, break the loop. 
      if(!swapped) {
         break;
      }
      
      printf("Iteration %d#: ",(i+1)); 
      display();
   }
	
}

void main() {
   printf("Input Array: ");
   display();
   printf("\n");
	
   bubbleSort();
   printf("\nOutput Array: ");
   display();
}

If we compile and run the above program, it will produce the following result −

Output

Input Array: [1 8 4 6 0 3 5 2 7 9 ]
     Items compared: [ 1, 8 ]  => not swapped
     Items compared: [ 8, 4 ]  => swapped [4, 8]
     Items compared: [ 8, 6 ]  => swapped [6, 8]
     Items compared: [ 8, 0 ]  => swapped [0, 8]
     Items compared: [ 8, 3 ]  => swapped [3, 8]
     Items compared: [ 8, 5 ]  => swapped [5, 8]
     Items compared: [ 8, 2 ]  => swapped [2, 8]
     Items compared: [ 8, 7 ]  => swapped [7, 8]
     Items compared: [ 8, 9 ]  => not swapped
Iteration 1#: [1 4 6 0 3 5 2 7 8 9 ]
     Items compared: [ 1, 4 ]  => not swapped
     Items compared: [ 4, 6 ]  => not swapped
     Items compared: [ 6, 0 ]  => swapped [0, 6]
     Items compared: [ 6, 3 ]  => swapped [3, 6]
     Items compared: [ 6, 5 ]  => swapped [5, 6]
     Items compared: [ 6, 2 ]  => swapped [2, 6]
     Items compared: [ 6, 7 ]  => not swapped
     Items compared: [ 7, 8 ]  => not swapped
Iteration 2#: [1 4 0 3 5 2 6 7 8 9 ]
     Items compared: [ 1, 4 ]  => not swapped
     Items compared: [ 4, 0 ]  => swapped [0, 4]
     Items compared: [ 4, 3 ]  => swapped [3, 4]
     Items compared: [ 4, 5 ]  => not swapped
     Items compared: [ 5, 2 ]  => swapped [2, 5]
     Items compared: [ 5, 6 ]  => not swapped
     Items compared: [ 6, 7 ]  => not swapped

     Items compared: [ 1, 0 ]  => swapped [0, 1]
     Items compared: [ 1, 3 ]  => not swapped
     Items compared: [ 3, 4 ]  => not swapped

Output Array: [0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 ]
