Internal use only. This exists so Windows, Linux, and Mac machines can have the same order after a sort. It will put dots and underscores first (with the sort key based on their second character, see examples. It also sorts lower case before upper case.

.sortDotsUnderscoreFirst(obj)

.orderDotsUnderscoreFirst(obj)

Arguments

obj

An arbitrary R object for which a names function returns a character vector.

Value

The same object as obj, but sorted with .objects first.

Examples

items <- c(A = "a", Z = "z", `.D` = ".d", `_C` = "_C") .sortDotsUnderscoreFirst(items)
#> _C .D A Z #> "_C" ".d" "a" "z"
# dots & underscore (using 2nd character), then all lower then all upper items <- c(B = "Upper", b = "lower", A = "a", `.D` = ".d", `_C` = "_C") .sortDotsUnderscoreFirst(items)
#> _C .D b A B #> "_C" ".d" "lower" "a" "Upper"
# with a vector .sortDotsUnderscoreFirst(c(".C", "_B", "A")) # _B is first
#> [1] "_B" ".C" "A"
