ms (mask alter sort) processing code

The ms processing code alters the normal sort sequence of characters.

System Processors Select, Update, List
Code Type Attribute Defining
Dictionary Attributes Correlative




The ms processing code sorts an attribute in a sequence specified by the item called seq in the messages file. This is only used on an attribute defined as a sort key; therefore this code must be applied as a correlative (attribute 8) and is not available for use in FlashBASIC.

The seq item must be manually added to the messages file using the suggested format:

seq (item-ID)
001 !"#$%&’()*+,-./0123456789:;<=>?@ABCDEFGHIJKLMN OPQRSTUVWXYZ[\]^_‘abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz{|}~
