C Program to implement Radix sort Algorithm

In this tutorial you will learn about the C Program to implement Radix sort Algorithm and its application with practical example.

C Program to implement Radix sort Algorithm

In this tutorial, we will learn to create a C program that will do Radix sort using C programming.

Prerequisites

Before starting with this tutorial we assume that you are best aware of the following C programming topics:

  • Operators in C Programming.
  • Basic Input and Output function in C Programming.
  • Basic C programming.
  • For loop in C Programming.
  • Creating and Using the user-defined function in C programming.

What is Radix sort?

In every programming language, the sorting of data is a very important factor. Sorting works are done mainly with the techniques available in C Language. Many different techniques for sorting are available to work with but in this tutorial, we will focus on the Radix Sort Technique.

The Radix Sort is a simple and easy technique. It first makes the group of similar values from a big given array then those small groups are again re-arranged and placed at the deserving positions.

Program for Radix sort

Output:-

In the above program we have first initialized the required variable and passed them to other functions for the Radix sort

  • no = it will hold the size of the array.
  • arr[]= it will hold the elements in an array.
  • i= it will hold the integer value to control the array.
  • j= it will hold the integer value to control the array.

Now the program will call the print function to display the elements.

After this, the program executes the next function & finds the largest number from the elements of the array.

Now the function to do count sort first

Now, the final step radix function to process the data.

As a result we got the sorted array.

By calling the print function.

In this tutorial we have learn about the C Program to implement Radix sort Algorithm and its application with practical example. I hope you will like this tutorial.
