# Postman Sort Algorithm Example

Write a C Program to Implement Postman Sort Algorithm Example. Here’s simple C Program to Implement Postman Sort Algorithm Example in C Programming Language.

Below is the source code for C Program to Implement Postman Sort Algorithm Example which is successfully compiled and run on Windows System to produce desired output as shown below :

## SOURCE CODE : :

```/*  C Program to Implement Postman Sort Algorithm Example  */

#include <stdio.h>

void arrange(int,int);
int array, array1;
int i, j, temp, max, count, maxdigits = 0, c = 0;

void main()
{
int t1, t2, k, t, n = 1;

printf("Enter size of array :");
scanf("%d", &count);
printf("Enter elements into array :");
for (i = 0; i < count; i++)
{
scanf("%d", &array[i]);
array1[i] = array[i];
}
for (i = 0; i < count; i++)
{
t = array[i];        /*first element in t */
while(t > 0)
{
c++;
t = t / 10;        /* Find MSB */
}
if (maxdigits < c)
maxdigits = c;   /* number of digits of a each number */
c = 0;
}
while(--maxdigits)
n = n * 10;

for (i = 0; i < count; i++)
{
max = array[i] / n;        /* MSB - Dividnng by perticular base */
t = i;
for (j = i + 1; j < count;j++)
{
if (max > (array[j] / n))
{
max = array[j] / n;   /* greatest MSB */
t = j;
}
}
temp = array1[t];
array1[t] = array1[i];
array1[i] = temp;
temp = array[t];
array[t] = array[i];
array[i] = temp;
}
while (n >= 1)
{
for (i = 0; i < count;)
{
t1 = array[i] / n;
for (j = i + 1; t1 == (array[j] / n); j++);
arrange(i, j);
i = j;
}
n = n / 10;
}
printf("\nSorted Array (Postman sort) :");
for (i = 0; i < count; i++)
printf("%d ", array1[i]);
printf("\n");
}

/* Function to arrange the of sequence having same base */
void arrange(int k,int n)
{
for (i = k; i < n - 1; i++)
{
for (j = i + 1; j < n; j++)
{
if (array1[i] > array1[j])
{
temp = array1[i];
array1[i] = array1[j];
array1[j] = temp;
temp = (array[i] % 10);
array[i] = (array[j] % 10);
array[j] = temp;
}
}
}
}```

### Output :

```/*  C Program to Implement Postman Sort Algorithm Example  */

Enter size of array :8
Enter elements into array :170
45
90
75
802
24
2
66

Sorted Array (Postman sort) :2 24 45 66 75 90 170 802```

Above is the source code for C Program to Implement Postman Sort Algorithm Example which is successfully compiled and run on Windows System.The Output of the program is shown above .
