WireArray::sortFlags() method

The following constants may be used when setting the sort flags:

  • SORT_NUMERIC compare items numerically
  • SORT_STRING compare items as strings
  • SORT_LOCALE_STRING compare items as strings, based on the current locale
  • SORT_NATURAL compare items as strings using “natural ordering” like natsort()
  • SORT_FLAG_CASE can be combined (bitwise OR) with SORT_STRING or SORT_NATURAL to sort strings case-insensitively
