hello
I am trying to make a program to interlace 2 vectors in assembler and I have a problem
I will probably have more until the end
but here is the deal


a db '13579'
la equ $-a
b db '2468'
lb equ $-b

c db (la+lb) dup(?)



so I now have 2 sorted vectors a and b and I want to put their elements sorted into the vector c

so, to write a value to the vecor c I use

mov c,bx

which of course is worng

so how should I do it?

I am also pasting the full source here so you can maby point out the thousands of other mistakes I undoubtely have:

.model small
.stack 100h

.data

a db '13579'
la equ $-a
b db '2468'
lb equ $-b

c db (la+lb) dup(?)

.code

mov dx,@data
mov ds,dx

xor si,si
xor di,di

xor cx,cx

cicluprincipal:

mov al,la
mov ah,0
mov bl,lb
mov bh,0

cmp ax,bx
jge maimareegal

mov c,ax

inc cx
mov dl,la
mov dh,0
cmp di,dx
jg tiparb
inc si
jmp cicluprincipal

maimareegal:

mov c,bx
inc cx
mov dl,la
mov dh,0
cmp di,dx
jg tipara

inc di

jmp cicluprincipal

tiparb: ;tipareste tot ce e in b
inc di
mov bl,b
mov bh,0

mov c,bx

cmp cx,bx
jg exit

inc cx
jmp tiparb

tipara: ;tipareste tot ce e in a
inc si
mov bl,a
mov bh,0

mov c,bx

cmp cx,bx
jg exit

inc cx
jmp tipara





mov ax,4ch
int 21h
end



thank you in advance

para,

    Look for a bubble sort routine.  Otherwise you will be reinventing the wheel.  The code below supposes a fictional bubble sort. Ratch


EXTERN BUBBLE_SORT:DWORD

.DATA?

.DATA
a BYTE '12579'
b BYTE '2468'

.CODE
START:
; ллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллллл

PUSH OFFSET a
PUSH (SIZEOF a + SIZEOF b)
CALL BUBBLE_SORT

Although, if the vectors you're "interlacing" (or "merging") are already sorted, you can just use a merge algorithm like what's used in merge sort.

Perhaps keeping integer values as strings is overkill/a bad idea?
Can't you work with actual integer values and convert them to strings only for display purposes and on demand?
