Issue #8709 has been updated by Eregon (Benoit Daloze).


@jhawthorn Good point, I forgot to mention this.

The sorting must respect explicit order for `{...,...}` and conceptually the same as sorting just after readdir(3), not on the full result to be correct.
That's also likely more efficient, due to sorting smaller arrays.
ruby/spec already captures this, 3 specs fail if sorting is done on the returned array instead of per directory.

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.
