    Default Sorting multiple digit numbers

    Is there any way I can sort multiple digit numbers in a more natural form instead of:

    e.g. [1,123,2222222222222,9]

    Default Re: Sorting multiple digit numbers

    Use their numeric values. What you've posted looks like they were sorted as Strings.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
