#11020: Natural sort
 Reporter: anonymous | Type: Bugs
   Status: new | Milestone: To Be Determined
Component: None | Version: Boost 1.57.0
 Severity: Problem | Keywords:
 Alphabetically sorting gives unwanted results for humans. For example the
 following strings get sorted this way:
 Arena 1
 Arena 10
 Arena 2

 What humans like is:
 Arena 1
 Arena 2
 Arena 10

 This is not trivial since the numbers can appear anywhere. Would this be a
 nice extension for Boost as well? Microsoft has solved this in
 StrCmpLogicalW. See also 'sorting-for-humans-natural-sort-order' (can't
 include a link; I get a trac-think-it-is-a-spam error)
