you should format arr[i] to ints, then you can use qsort to sort them.

try to use binary search and Functional Macros...

e.g.

Why not just scan over the array of ints, and keep track of the largest value, then return it?

function findLarge(char **arr, int count)
{
 int i, largest=0, count;
 for(i=0;i<count;i++)
    if (arr[i] > largest)
       largest=arr[i];
 return largest;
}
