I tried to create a program that reads in 10 alphabetic characters, then displays those characters in alphabetic order. I thought I had it, but the code I have now doesn't sort them. It actually just gives me the characters back in the exact same order. Here is what I have:

If someone can someone show me what I did wrong, and a code as to how to remedy the situation, I'd be very grateful.
