i want to sort only the elements with even indexes in array using shellsort. since i didnot see the algorithm clearly , i cant edit it. my code for shellsort is:

template <class type>

void shellSort(type A[], int size)
{
  int i, j, incrmnt;
  type temp;

  incrmnt = size / 2;
  while (incrmnt > 0)
  {
        for (i=incrmnt; i < size; i++)
    {
      j = i;
      temp = A[i];
      while ((j >= incrmnt) && (A[j-incrmnt] > temp))
      {
        A[j] = A[j - incrmnt];
        j = j - incrmnt;
      }
      A[j] = temp;
    }
    incrmnt /= 2;
  }
}

where i should edit, any help?

What happens with the odd indexes? If it doesn't matter or if they sould be sorted with their even neighbor, you could do that:

template <class type>
void shellSort(type B[], int size)
{

  struct Even
  {
     type x[2];
     bool operator> (const Even& e) const
     { return x[0] > e.x[0]; }
  };

  Even* A = reinterpret_cast<Even*>(B);
  size /= 2;
 
   // below use your code
   ...
}

odd indexes will remain same.eg:

12 8 2 15 68 94 49 -> 2   8  12  15  49  94  68
i will try to sort this new array with another algortihm. just to understand the algorithms more.

That should do it:

int makeEven(int i)
{
    return ((i%2) == 0)?  i : --i;  
}

template <class type>
void shellSort(type A[], int size)
{
  int i, j, incrmnt;
  type temp;

  incrmnt = makeEven(size / 2);
  while (incrmnt > 0)
  {
     for (i=incrmnt; i < makeEven(size); i += 2)
     {
       j = i;
       temp = A[i];
       while ((j >= incrmnt) && (A[j-incrmnt] > temp))
       {
          A[j] = A[j - incrmnt];
          j = j - incrmnt;         // j is still even
       }
      A[j] = temp;
    }
    incrmnt = makeEven(incrmnt/2);
  }
}
