C Exercises: Sort n numbers in range from 0 to n^2.

Sample Solution:

C Code:

#include <stdio.h>
int countSort(int arr1[], int n, int exp)
{
    int output[n]; 
    int i, ctr[n] ;
    for (int i=0; i < n; i++)
       ctr[i] = 0;

    for (i = 0; i < n; i++)
        ctr[ (arr1[i]/exp)%n ]++;

    for (i = 1; i < n; i++)
        ctr[i] += ctr[i - 1];

    for (i = n - 1; i >= 0; i--)
    {
        output[ctr[ (arr1[i]/exp)%n] - 1] = arr1[i];
        ctr[(arr1[i]/exp)%n]--;
    }
    for (i = 0; i < n; i++)
        arr1[i] = output[i];
}

void sortArray(int arr1[], int n)
{
    countSort(arr1, n, 1);
    countSort(arr1, n, n);
}

void printBothArr(int arr1[], int n)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        printf("%d  ",arr1[i]);
}
int main()
{
    int arr1[] = {37, 62, 52, 7, 48, 3, 15, 61};
    int n = sizeof(arr1)/sizeof(arr1[0]);
    printf("The given array is:  ");
    printBothArr(arr1, n);
    sortArray(arr1, n);
    printf("\nSorted array is:  ");
    printBothArr(arr1, n);
    return 0;
}

Sample Output:

The given array is:  37  62  52  7  48  3  15  61  
Sorted array is:  3  7  15  37  48  52  61  62
