comment specify the sort order in “copy /b *.dat foo” in Windows cmd
Thank you. I was also suspicious on typing a binary file but apparently it works as expected on my Windows 7 machine.

@Joel The filenames are just nnnnnnnn.data where n is a digit and the numbers are consecutive counting from 1. The odd file is always the second last file in the sorted order. Say if I have 5 files, 00000004.data will come out first.
