Hi Tiemo,

Since you're just asking for comments, I'm not sure what kind of answer 
you're looking for but I'll try.

To process an array in sorted order, you can put the keys into a variable:

put the keys of myArray into myKeys
sort the lines of myKeys ascending international
repeat for each line myKey in myKeys
   // do something with myArray[myKey]
end repeat

This processes the array in internationally sorted order.

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
