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.
