    Asci collating sequence


    Hi guys , looking for some help
    If i am not wrong as per the ASCII character collating sequence if we list down the files in a directory the files with upper case must be listed down first

    What should be the case if my file names are REadme and reADME

    Which file should be listed first

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    The output would also take into account the position of each letter, so in your example REadme would collate before reADME which would collate before readme.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
