Hi. The dictionary explicitly says "lines" or "items". I don't think it will sort words at all. Even if you:


sort it descending numeric


It will not throw an error, but it also will not sort.

get "4 6 2 8 5"
   sort words of it ascending numeric

Subject: sorting words ?

Hi list
Just a quick question; the following returns a compilation error :
   get "4 6 2 8 5"
   sort words of it ascending numeric

Is it because the sort function doesn't apply to words, or am I missing
something ?

Thanks
jbv
