August Code Challenge (Sponsor: Programming Research)

Ready to put your programming skills to the test? Take the new Electrical Engineering Challenge (sponsored by Programming Research). Find the error in the code for a shot to win prizes, such as an Amazon Gift Card or a Circuit Cellar magazine digital subscription.


The following is a sample piece of code that has a subtle programming error that would cause the software to fail. This code is a C++ language program but written as a function.

Specification: The program does a bubble sort for a list (array) of numbers. That means that it takes a list of numbers like this: 5 23 7 1 9 and turns it into 1 5 7 9 23.
