Sorting integers, characters, and decimals

I need to sort integers, characters, and decimals in ascending and descending order. I need to take the input from a user and take those numbers/characters and sort them. Can you please help me with the most basic way to do this? All I can think of is using the Bubble sort, but my book only shows me how to do bubble sort with random numbers. Your help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your time.
