Normally, when I do a
copy /b *.data foo in Windows cmd, the
*.data files are catenated in the sorted order into the destination file
foo. This matches my desired behavior.
However, I just met a curious directory in which this
copy /b command will copy the files out of order. The order is not exactly random, but second last file in the sorted order will go first, followed by the remaining files in sorted order.
Is there a way to overcome this strange sorting behavior? More generally, what if I want to copy the files, say, in the reverse order?
