Is it possible to make vifm to sort files like this:

_1.txt
_a.txt
_c.txt
.1.txt
.2.txt
.a.txt
003.png
004.png
2.txt
201.txt
21.txt
210.txt
a.txt
b.txt
d.txt

that is based on this ordering:

  1. Underscore
  2. Dot
  3. Numbers
  4. Alphabet

Thank you

No, sorting just compares character codes for the most part. Custom sorting functions in Lua might be added later (although not sure about their performance on large number of files).

If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here is acceptable, but this is not a perfect place for them.
