### What is a list sort? (Definition)

A list sort is the arrangement of the items in a list in a specific order, such as alphabetical or numerical order.

### How to sort a list of words/names?

Sorting/Ordering can be done alphabetically, reverse alphabetically, by length (size of the element), numerical value (from greatest/lowest/least), ascending or descending order. dCode also offers a totally random sorting (also see random selection tool).

For the classifications of words or proper names, dCode can manage accents and diacritics, sort words in uppercase or lowercase, etc.

Example: ABCD,BAC,CAB,BA,CB can be sorted alphabetically ABCD,BA,BAC,CAB,CB or by length BA,CB,BAC,CAB,ABCD.

Items that should be sorted can be displayed one per line, or word by word.

### How to sort a list of numbers?

Sorting is made according to the position of the number over the axis of real numbers.

Example: 1,2,-3,0 can be sorted numerically -3,0,1,2 (from the smallest to the biggest)

dCode can handle integers, decimals or negative numbers.
