SortDirExt kinda broken in v9?

Post by *Partial » 2018-01-03, 23:02 UTC

nice option SortDirExt=1 in TC was meant purely to sort directories by extension. So that clicking on Ext tab would sort all dirs according to extension (yeah, I'm using extensions for dirs to sort things out). It didn't influence normal sorting order by name.

However in TC v9 if SortDirExt=1 is set in windcmd.ini it starts to influence normal sorting order by Name.

E.g. directories "v6.4" and "v6.3 X.5" will be sorted like this

v6.4
v6.3 X.5

or did I miss some "hidden" option like "natural sorting order" or something else?


To clarify:

This behaviour happens when dirs are sorted by NAME.

Should happen only when sorted by EXTENSION.

I compared sorting behaviour with SortDirExt=1 with TC versions 8 and 9 - and in v9 sorting seems to be "broken" or just different.
