[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
But on an IIS server, things get out of order. (I have no idea why.) If I
from the above function, the IIS server behaves nicely.
Is there any way to write a function which will accommodate both situations
All of my filenames are as such...
and as such, there should be some way to order them.
