Parameters - Sort Page

Sort sortmethod - - Determines how the table will be sorted.

  • Rows (Specify Column Name) colname - Sort rows using the column specified under the Name parameter.
  • Rows (Specify Column Index) colindex - Sort rows using the column specified under the Index parameter.
  • Rows (Preserve Input Order) colpreserve - Uses the current ordering of the input. This sorting allows parameters such as Preserve First, Unique Output, and Reverse Output to be applied to the original input.
  • Columns (Specify Row Name) rowname - Sort columns using the row specified under the Name parameter.
  • Columns (Specify Row Index) rowindex - Sort columns using the row specified under the Index parameter.
  • Columns (Preserve Input Order) rowpreserve - Uses the current ordering of the input. This sorting allows parameters such as Preserve First, Unique Output, and Reverse Output to be applied to the original input.

Name name - When using Sort Specify Row/Column Name, specify the name in this parameter. If the sort name does not find a match, the output will be unsorted.

Index index - When using Sort Specify Row/Column Index, specify the index in this parameter. If the sort index is -1 or out of bounds, the output will be unsorted.

Order order - - Determines the type of sorting.

  • Alphabetical alpha - Use alphabetical sorting. Numbers are treated as characters, sorted by their ASCII values.
  • Alphabetical with Numbers alphanum - Use alphanumerical sorting.
  • Numbers nums - Use numerical sorting. Characters are all treated as 0, incoming order is preserved.
  • Random random - Randomly sorts the table, uses random Seed parameter below.

Seed seed - The random seed when Sort Order is set to Random.  

Ignore Case ignorecase - Ignores case sensitivity when Sort Order is set to Alphabetical or Alphabetical with Numbers.

Preserve First preservefirst - Does not resort the first row or column (depending if Sort is set to Rows or Columns).

Unique Output unique - - Remove duplicate rows/column entries in the sorted row/column.

  • Off off -
  • Single Row/Col single -
  • Entire Rows/Cols entire -

Reverse Output reverse - Reverses the sort order.

An Operator Family that manipulates text strings: multi-line text or tables. Multi-line text is often a command Script, but can be any multi-line text. Tables are rows and columns of cells, each containing a text string.

The generic thing that holds an Operator, and includes Flags (display, bypass, lock, render, immune) and its position/size in the network. Whether you "lay down an Operator" or "lay down an Node", you're doing the same thing.
