//echo -a $sorttok(1-1 10-1 5-1 20-1,32,n)

6.03: 1-1 5-1 10-1 20-1
6.1: 1-1 10-1 20-1 5-1

You can argue that they are not numbers, but 6.03 and all previous mIRC's used to sort that way, if i wanted alphabetical i wouldnt specify n.. I don't see a reason to remove the functionality of being able to apply numerical sorting to tokens like this... all it does is break scripts....

I agree, I don't see why this functionality was removed (could it be the compiler switch?), especially since /filter still works the old way. Speaking of /filter, you might find this workaround useful, although not pretty.


/.timerQ 1 0 echo /.timerQ 1 0 $timer(Q).com

Most likely, you can thank mIRC 6.1's "improved" sorting method.

Most subtle changes like this are only made when people ask for them. In this case, the request was to sort non-text items correctly even in a list of numeric tokens.

Unfortunately, in your example, the tokens you've specified are actually non-numeric.

I will add a new sort method in the next version of $sorttok(), so that 'n' will work as in 6.03.
