One way to sort a list alphabetically within a console application is to use the built-in function or method that corresponds to the programming language being used.

For example, in Python, one can use the sort() method to sort a list alphabetically. Here's some sample code:

fruits = ['apple', 'banana', 'orange', 'kiwi']


['apple', 'banana', 'kiwi', 'orange']

Another way is to implement a custom sort function that compares the elements of the list and sorts them accordingly.

Here's an example in JavaScript:

let fruits = ['apple', 'banana', 'orange', 'kiwi'];
fruits.sort((a, b) => a.localeCompare(b));


['apple', 'banana', 'kiwi', 'orange']

In C++, one can use the sort() function from the <algorithm> library.

Here's some sample code:

#include <iostream>
#include <algorithm>
#include <vector>

using namespace std;

int main() {
  vector<string> fruits = {"apple", "banana", "orange", "kiwi"};
  sort(fruits.begin(), fruits.end());
  for(auto fruit : fruits) {
      cout << fruit << " ";
  return 0;


apple banana kiwi orange

Overall, the approach may vary depending on the programming language being used, but the main idea is to use a function or method that can sort a list alphabetically.
