[REBOL] sort/reverse revisited

From: ryan:christiansen:intellisol at: 11-Apr-2001 13:50

I'm having fits over using sort/reverse to sort file names from a directory. I know we've gone over this before, but what I thought was working is no longer working. For example, using the following function on a Linux server seems to work fine: 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 sort/reverse message-block message-block ] ] But on an IIS server, things get out of order. (I have no idea why.) If I remove... sort/reverse message-block from the above function, the IIS server behaves nicely. Is there any way to write a function which will accommodate both situations nicely? All of my filenames are as such... 20010410145432 20010410145433 20010410145434 and as such, there should be some way to order them. Ryan C.
