I have been consulting the manual and playing with a few different
approaches to this;
this comes the closest to what I want:
function sortAlg($_a, $_b)
return strcasecmp($_a, $_b);
$_result['dirs'] is itself an array where the associative string keys
are what I want to sort by.
Everything works fine, accept
I have a series of directories that follow the naming pattern 'lab_#'
so, what happens with the sort is that the labs come out
... etc... up to lab_13
... etc... up to lab_9
Am I going to have to code to find these cases and sort them as a
separate array by keys?
This is also coming out of Apache on a FreeBSD system. The sorting
order appears to be
creation date, as the last items created in this part of the file
system appear last without any
Without any sorting most of the lab_# names come out in the right
order, but that is, I believe,
because all of these directories and files were posted via ftp
transfer at the same time.
So, lab_0 through lab_8 come out in the right order, but lab_9 through
lab_13 seem to
appear according to subsequent creation date.
