  • Are the tests supposed to be non-alpha order when not using the shuffle option?
    • It would appear that the order above is the same order if one does "dir" in the t directory. Not by date. Not by last mod. Not by name. Not by size.

      Who knows what the hell Windows is doing. Maybe by ntfs node id or something terribly non-useful.

        Eh? The 'dir' command lists file in alphabetical order by default, as does Perl's readdir() on Windows. Yours doesn't?

        There are no inodes on Windows, btw. :)

        • Well, not inodes, no, but ntfs pointers. I think this is a windows "feature". On permanent drives, it is indeed alphabetical. On removable drives (USB, or at least the one I have), it is NOT alphabetical.
