Hi,

can anybody give me a hint
i have 2 vectors of strings, one is a list containing
some names sorted from the base object to the top
eg

object1
object2
object3
object4

object 2 extensd object 1, 3 extends 2 and so on

the next vector is allso filled with strings that
represent theese classes (user input). it must contain at least one (the top object eg object4) and may contain some more but they must be in correct order.
so the user can enter
object1
object4

or

object3
object4

but can not enter

object2
object1
object4

can you help me with some sorting algorythm on this example ???

thanx

There's no need to use a sorting algorithm. just compare the user input if the vector is not empty:

#include <string>
#include <vector>

using namespace std;

//...

vector<string> myvec;
string user_input;

// read input

if ( !myvec.empty()) {

 if ( 0 > user_input.compare ( *(myvec.back())) {

  // user input is "less", therefore not allowed
 }
}

Sorry,

"just compare the user input if the vector is not empty:"

should read

"just compare the user input to the last element of the vector if the vector is not empty:"
