Locale aware sorting can be tricky, I'll have to look at that code again. Sorting different keys and directions are trivial with sorted(). I'm not sure what different "algorithms" mean, with sorted you implement a function that returns a sorting key, that sorting key is then used to sort. It should be possible to sort according to any algorithm that way. //Lennart _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
