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.

    Yes, you are right, of course - it just looked strange on first glance. However, after I've reviewed my requirements, I don't think it'll cause any problems either way, so the solutions offered here are perfect. :-)

    Cheerio,
