Hi all. 

I somehow got on to how to sort IP addresses, seeing they are not real numbers, and read in the dictionary that the sort command is a "stable sort". This occured to me:

function sortIPList pIPList
   set the itemdelimiter to "."
   sort lines of pIPList numeric by item 4 of each
   sort lines of pIPList numeric by item 3 of each
   sort lines of pIPList numeric by item 2 of each
   sort lines of pIPList numeric by item 1 of each
   return pIPList
end sortIPList

Enjoy!
