Database alphabetic sorting order?

(1/3) > >>

Is there a way to make the DB sort such that 'AndrĂ¡s' comes before 'Andrew', as it does with 'Andras', rather than after?  I looked in Settings and also in the Manual but I didn't find anything (although, knowing me, it's probably in there somewhere).


Rockbox seems not to have any ability to do locale aware sorting, unfortunately.

Thanks for your reply.

I guess it was somewhat of a U.S. english-centric expectation for me to assume that Rockbox would (or could) sort the same way that macOS, Windows, and iTunes all do for me.  It hadn't occurred to me that it would be a custom/localization situation.  Still, doesn't the in-use font usually dictate the way systems handle language manipulations?  Is right-to-left Hebrew available/useable in Rockbox?

So does Rockbox just sort on raw numeric character codes?

its more of a code size thing but yes its done by character code

we support many languages for display and RTL works as well but the core isn't Unicode aware
just Unicode tolerant

We support many different devices with varying amounts of ram every thing you mentioned has more raw power memory and storage space available than probably all the targets combined

Understood.  Thanks very much for taking the time to reply and explain.
