Problems using sort() function

Hi there,

I'm trying to sort an array in ASC order, by doing the following operations, but instead of outputing a sorted array, i get a "1" integer...

Here's what returns print_r($a)

before sorting :

Array ( [0] => . [1] => .. [2] => accueil_php.php [3] => commande.php [4] => configure.php [5] => connect.php [6] => connexion.php [7] => database_tables.php [8] => date-heure.php [9] => db_funcs.php [10] => eachtest.php [11] => errors.php [12] => form_mail.php [13] => form_selection.php [14] => formulaire.php [15] => functions.php [16] => image.php [17] => insert_test.php [18] => ipaddr.php [19] => membres.php [20] => multiples.php [21] => news.php [22] => poubelle.php [23] => rand.php [24] => resultat.php [25] => sites.php [26] => string_compare.php [27] => tableau_associatif.php [28] => tableau_associatif_each.php [29] => tableau_associatif_foreach.php [30] => upload [31] => upload.php [32] => viewnews.php )

After sorting :

1

And i get the same result using array_multisort or any other sorting function...

That's making me crazy!

Can someone help ?

Thx

Terence

The sort() function sorts the array inplace. Try this:
$a=scandir('.');
sort($a);
print_r($a);
