Talk:Sort a list of object identifiers

From Rosetta Code

In what significant way does this differ from Sort using a custom comparator? Or Natural sorting for that matter? Actually, one could directly use the code from Natural sorting to sort lists of OIDs. --Thundergnat (talk) 00:14, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

I think it's okay if one task is a generalization of another, because the more specific version might be able to take shortcuts that can lead to different approaches in some languages. --Smls (talk) 12:21, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
I have asked similar questions about the multiplicity of the various "sorting" tasks. I have come to accept it, because apparently sorting is a thing and people like to play with different ways of doing it. --Rdm (talk) 12:48, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Correctly sorted?

That output has some undocumented decorations on it, presumably those are not relevant to the task? --Rdm (talk) 00:32, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

I rewrote the task description and replaced the test-case with a new one, now without ASCII decorations. --Smls (talk) 12:21, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Note: OID numbers start with "." dot
