I know it is fairly easy to implement (though not always well defined), but is there an existing sort function out there that takes alphanum strings and sort them in a "human" fashion? For example, instead of:

z1.doc z10.doc z100.doc z101.doc z11.doc z2.doc

it should out put:

z1.doc z2.doc z10.doc z11.doc z100.doc z101.doc

(from http://www.davekoelle.com/alphanum.html).
