13:30 rindolf Hi all.
13:30 rindolf http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Dea​l_cards_for_FreeCell#JavaScript - I added this. Should it come before "J" or afterwards?
13:30 fedaykin "Deal cards for FreeCell - Rosetta Code" http://rldn.net/89a
13:42 Hypftier after, usually
13:42 rindolf OK.
13:42 rindolf Will fix.
13:57 mwn3d_phone1 Yeah where one word is completely contained at the front of another word the shorter one goes first
13:59 Hypftier it's funny to ask such a question, though, given that nearly every language has facilities of sorting strings ;)
14:20 eMBee isn't there a task for this question? if not, there should be. it would be interesting to find out if sorting is actually uniform.
14:32 rindolf Lexicographical sorting can be locale dependent.
14:32 rindolf I.e: LC_ALL=C sort and LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 sort will be different.
14:36 eMBee but shouldn't be in the case of "a " vs "ab", at least for english, however "a" vs "ab" might not be consistent, because you can't just apply ascii order
14:45 mwn3d_phone1 Check in [[Category:Sorting]] (if that exists) or I think there's a string operations category maybe?
14:45 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Category:Sorting
14:47 mwn3d_phone1 [[Natural sorting]] is close but I think you're just looking to see built-in sorting algorithms right?
