[REBOL] Re: Sorting multiple fields at one time......

From: rebol:ccsducto:ar at: 3-Apr-2006 9:47

Hi John, to sort by more than one field you can do this: sort/skip/compare sortBlock 4 [1 4] This is SORT a serie 4 by 4 and compare the fields 1 and 4 4 is for /skip refinement [1 4] is for /compare refinement You can use any field in any order, for instance [4 3 2 1] or [3 1 2] or 4 For just one field you can use the integer (not block), the first field is the default Regards CÚsar ----- Original Message ----- From: "John Dutcher" <> To: <> Sent: Tuesday, March 21, 2006 7:09 AM Subject: [REBOL] Sorting multiple fields at one time......
