Have you tried the zl object? That has a whole bunch of organizing functions.

yes, zl sort is pretty useful,
in fact i’ve got a list of couples (x,y) that i need to organize by x’s increasing.
i think combining zl sort and coll objects will be ok.
thanks!

No problem! And if you’ve got pairs of numbers, you don’t need zl at all. Just store the numbers in ‘coll’, and send it the message ‘sort -1 -1′, which will sort the pairs ascending by the first number (index).
