human-sort 0.2.2

Human sort (natural sort) implementation
Documentation Build Status


Utilities to sort and compare strings with numeric symbols in human-friendly order.

It built over iterators and compare string slices char by char (except for numerals) until the first difference found without creating Strings or another structures with whole data from provided &str, so doesn't require lots of memory.


use human_sort::sort;

let mut arr = ["file10.txt", "file2.txt", "file1.txt"];
sort(&mut arr);

assert_eq!(arr, ["file1.txt", "file2.txt", "file10.txt"]);
use std::cmp::Ordering;
use human_sort::compare;

assert_eq!(compare("item200", "item3"), Ordering::Greater);
