I thought I was pretty clever at using “do”, often going down several levels, evaluating the whole way before trying to execute a single “do” statement. Neither of the last lines seem to work: on mouseup put "A,C,T,B" into toSort put "ascending" into sortDir get "sort items of" && quote &

You have to do this: replace cr with crlf in tBody Personal Btw: I find that using ‘return’ results in ugly code as a personal preference, so I avoid that and use cr. it’s just that the script renderer shows ‘return’ in yellow for it’s command equivalent because they still haven’t coded the

Craig, It's because when you try to sort something, it's got to be a variable that's being sorted. So all of the examples you used put "toSort" into the statement to be "done" coming out compiled as: sort items of "A,C,T,B" ascending ... which won't work. You need to execute: do

Correct. So the current situation requires you to use binfile for Mac/Linux and file for Windows/Linux to get appropriate line endings. You can’t do it just one way, you have to check your OS. Notice that Linux works both ways. (You also should encode/decode if using binfile) In
