Version sort does not handle tilde

Reported by: yurikhan Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 4.8.23
Component: mc-core Version: 4.8.15
Keywords: panel sort Cc:

Branch state: no branch Votes for changeset:


Versions: mc 4.8.15 on Ubuntu 16.04.

To reproduce:

  1. F7 firefox-58.0.1+build1 Enter
  2. F7 firefox-59.0~b14+build1 Enter
  3. F7 firefox-59.0.1+build1 Enter
  4. F9 Enter | Sort order, (*) Version, [ ] Reverse, OK

Observed behavior: in the Midnight Commander panel, the order is:

  1. $ ls -1v

Observed behavior: in the ls output, the order is:


Expected behavior: Midnight Commander ordering should be consistent with ls.

Background: The tilde character in version numbers is specified by Debian Policy to come before everything, even the end of a version component. And I checked, ls implements it natively, it’s not a Debian-specific patch.
