I need to sort an array of string where I don't want the Capitals to be smaller then the normal case.

Example A = a

I guess using ToUpper will help me but I can't get it to work.
Or maybe there is another way to do it .

Thank you

Here is what I got so far ,
It display the list not even in Order

void Sort(string LIST[],string TYPE[],int n)
{

 string tmp;
 
 char TEMP[2000][200];
 string TEMP2[2000];
 for (int i = 0 ; i < n ; i++)
            {
            strcpy(TEMP[i],LIST[i].c_str());
                  int j = 0;
                  do
                  {
                        if(TEMP[i][j] >= 97 && TEMP[i][j] <= 122 )
                              TEMP[i][j] -= 32;
                              j++;
                  }while(TEMP[i][j]!=0);
                  TEMP2[i] = TEMP[i];
            }

            
            for (int i = 0 ; i < n ; i++)
      
      //This is for Debugging Purposes      
      cout << TEMP2[i] << " " << TEMP[i]<< LIST[i] << endl;
 
 for (int i=0; i<n-1; i++) {
  for (int j=0; j<n-1-i; j++){
    //this is to be able to find repeated words since , I dont want repetition
    if (LIST[j+1] == LIST[j]){
    LIST[j] = "";
    TYPE[j] = "";
    }//End of IF
    else if (TEMP2[j+1] < TEMP2[j]) {  /* compare the two neighbors */
      tmp = LIST[j];           /* swap a[j] and a[j+1]      */
      LIST[j] = LIST[j+1];
      LIST[j+1] = tmp;
      tmp = TYPE[j];           /* swap a[j] and a[j+1]      */
      TYPE[j] = TYPE[j+1];
      TYPE[j+1] = tmp;
  }//End Of ElseIF
  }//End of Inner For Loop
}//End of Outer For Loop


}//End Of Sort Function

Do you need to preserve the original capitalization after sorting and do you need to remove duplicates?

yes, well I created 2 function, void SORT and void SORTWITHOUTREMOVE

and I need to keep the original Case after , this is why Im doing the check on the TEMP2 but affecting the actual LIST.
