Help with Arrays

If what you are asking is being able to keep a sort order when making an array, or extracting an array back into a normal variable, then know that this is not how LC manages them.

Arrays in LC are purely associative; sort order is not even glanced at. All sorting has to be done once the array is changed back into the clear, usually at the time the "combine" command does its thing.

That's strange - the sort command doesn't make a difference when I try it out
(LC 6.1.2 on Mac 10.8.5) - is it working for others?
