in thread Dictionary-style sort a la Tcl?

Actually, I think that would be correct. 1 would come before 123 in numeric sequence (according to your definition of the -dictionary sort). Also, I think big9boys would appear before bigboys, but just because in ascii order the digits come before letters.
