Subject: RE: RB Directory listing order
From: deonarin_at_netscape.net
Date: 2004-08-02


As an alternative to modifying the way we sort file names in directories, if the id3 patch I've proposed is accepted, you could just sort by track number as listed in the id3 tag.

The way it was implemented, it will automatically use two digits for the track number. (it pads 1-digit tracks with a space, which may be more pleasing than a leading zero...)
