Sorting bug?

When I sort by path it sorts by subsing index like this

Subsong 0
Subsong 1
Subsong 10
Subsong 11

That's nothing. Windows Explorer in XP is either broken on my system, or just plain broken, for it sorts a directory of files by name like this:


0A.spc
0B.spc
0C.spc
0D.spc
0E.spc
0F.spc
01.spc
1A.spc
1B.spc
1C.spc
1D.spc
1E.spc
1F.spc
02.spc
03.spc

etc.

I'd love to know what logic lies behind that ordering system.

The same logic that places 0.xxx .. 9.xxx before 10.xxx .. 99.xxx

If I want 0. and 9. before 10. and 99., I'll pad, thank you very much. Oh well, not like I use Explorer often anyway.

Heh, yeah, agreed.

But what do you use instead?

cmd.exe


Oh, and I finally tracked down the problem, and now I'm happy.

Code: [Select]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoStrCmpLogical"=dword:00000001
