There's a new tool. Sort lines. It shows a sorted list of lines from what you enter. You could start with


									c
									a
									b
									a
									d
									

and it would sort it to this.

Tool Update - Sort Lines is adding natural ordering

2023-12-05

The tool Sort lines is useful already. However, I wanted to add a nicer sorting approach. Natural ordering helps when sorting things that are a mix of letters and numbers. With just alphabetic, you could start with this


									1
									2
									3
									100
									101
									

and it would sort it to this.


									1
									100
									101
									2
									3
									

But that isn't what I usually want. If there are numbers, I want them to be sorted like this.


									1
									2
									3
									100
									101
									

Also, if we have a mix of letters and numbers, I would want something that would sort like this.


									File1
									File2
									File3
									File100
									File101
									Output1
									Output2
									

Have a great day!
