Sorting With the sort() Algorithm

The generic algorithm sort() is part of the Standard Library. sort() takes two arguments of type const iterator that point to the beginning and the end of the sequence respectively:
#include <iostream>
#include <algorithm> //definition of sort()
#include <vector>
using namespace std;

void main()
  vector <int> vi;
  sort(vi.begin(), vi.end() );   // sort vi; default is ascending order
  cout<< vi[0]  <<", "<< vi[1] <<", "<< vi[2] <<endl;  // output: 1, 7, 19
When a descending order is preferred, you can use reverse iterators:
sort(vi.rbegin(), vi.rend() ); // now sort in descending order 
cout<< vi[0] <<", "<<vi[1]<<", "<<vi[2]<<endl; // output: 19, 7, 1
