Subject: Re: playlist using dos dir command

Re: playlist using dos dir command

From: BlueChip <cs_bluechip_at_webtribe.net>

DIR /? suggests:

/O List by files in sorted order.
sortorder N By name (alphabetic) S By size (smallest first)
              E By extension (alphabetic) D By date & time (earliest first)
              G Group directories first - Prefix to reverse order
              A By Last Access Date (earliest first)

eg "dir /on"

Or maybe use:

"sort < randomfile.txt > sortedfile.txt"

The default sort order is called "AsIs" ...ie. the order in which the files
were created (given nothing has been added after a deletion had been made.)
