[REBOL] Re: Sorting multiple fields at one time......
From: greggirwin::mindspring::com at: 21-Mar-2006 10:51
If you add your records so each one is a sub-block, e.g.:
if (regnbr <> "XXXX") [
repend/only sortBlock [lname fname mold minit regnbr]
then you *should* just be able to use SORT without any refinements. I
say should, because there may be cases where it doesn't work as you
expect, but for consistently formatted blocks, it's pretty smart.
Also, for loops that start at 1 and step by 1, REPEAT is *much* faster
than FOR. FOR is a mezzanine while REPEAT is a native.
