Issue #8709 has been updated by bmwiedemann (Bernhard M. Wiedemann).


The benchmark numbers above show a difference of 12%

That is probably the worst case, because usually, globs will return fewer entries (though for some strange reason I get a 20% diff on a dir with 200 entries)

and usually some processing will be performed on the returned files and that will take much longer than the sorting.

Feature #8709: Dir.glob should return sorted file list

----------------------------------------
On OS X, Dir.glob and Dir[] return an ordered list of files.

On Ubuntu Linux, they do not and one must manually sort them.

Returning a list of files that isn't in order fails the Principle of Least Astonishment.

I attach a unit test to demonstrate ideal behaviour.
