[REBOL] files out of order

From: ryan:christiansen:intellisol at: 29-Mar-2001 13:33

I have a directory of XML-formatted messages, each saved with a numeric filename based on the time of creation, for example /news/20010329105032.txt /news/20010329105033.txt /news/20010329105034.txt I use the following function to read the directory and to create a block of file names, with the intention of placing the newest files first in the block (in other words, the files with the highest number first in the block.) read-directory-messages: func [ "Read a directory of XML-formatted standard messages with the directory determined by messageType." message-directory [block!] "A block of file names corresponding to a directory of XML-formatted standard messages." ][ message-block: copy [] foreach file-name message-directory [ file-contents: read file-name insert message-block file-contents ] ] But using the above function, I get files showing up in the block out of order. Am I doing something wrong? Ryan C.
