Summary0000472: Sorting Unicode characters
DescriptionI've installed wxwidgets 2.6 with support for Unicode, and I'm glad with it, but when I sort the files alphabetically, files that start with accentuated characters are placed at the end of the list. For example, if I have "Álex", "Anthony" and "Benjamin", that should be the right order, but "Álex" is placed the last. Perhaps that's a bug of wxwidgets. Anyway, it's a nonsense :D

How are you, hum, suposed to sort wide chars?

Well... at least in Spanish and German dictionaries, a vowel with an accent is treated as a simple vowel to get sorted, so Benjamín and Benjamin would be sorted in the same place.

I hope I have explained... my English is very poor :(

Problem is, even if they look alike, the chars have a completely different identifier. Dunno if there's any way to map them, but I'm sure I don't know it.

It is possible to do, but doesn't worth the effort. The unicode character table (available from The Unicode Consortium) contains the composite map for each (composite) character, so it would reveal that Á = A + ´, so it can be sorted as "A"

However, it was a good solution only if we were talking of one single language. I don't think it would be a good idea to include a several megabytes database in aMule, just to fix sorting.

So, technically the issue is closed. Reopen it when cheap sorting solutions found for unicode.
