> Yes, the dirs could use a sort as well. Do they currently appear in
non-alpha order on Windows?
Yes, as I noted previously, the default order used by the operating system
is "create date" and this appears to be the order in which the C-code
underlying REBOL returns files and dirs. In Windows Explorer, files and
sub-dirs are sorted lexicographically (dirs first, weird chars first). That
is they are not displayed in their "natural" order.
returns the number of files in the directory, and
returns the creation date. So it would make sense to have sorting on these
attributes as well.
PS I read most of the code for file-req.r last night and continue to be
amazed at the power of dialecting, especially VID.
