Re: What sorts first, Digit or Letter? (Windows)

What version of Windows are you using?


On XP and Vista, mine has 111.txt then 111-1.txt.

But I don't see any letters here, just numerics and punctuation.  Somehow it seems that "." sorts before "-".

But "," sorts before ".".


On a Unix or Linux system with the C locale, the files typically sort in ASCII order, where "-" is before ".".

I'm not sure what History has to do with this topic?
