When sorting the list of filenames "alphabetically" Cyberduck returns a different order than the Finder application. Which makes a visual compare of directories (local vs. remote) very difficult. Browsing the web for an explanation it became clear that Finder is sorting "lexicographically" or at least by design differently than for example the MS Windows Browser (and in this case also Cyberduck).

I could not find a way to adjust the sorting order in Finder - it seems as Apple is insisting on the current implementation - as also used in many mainframe operating systems.

However, since Cyberduck is relying on Finder as the browser for the files held locally I would claim the method of sorting should be identical. One way or any other!??

Thanks for your time.

The ordering should be the same as in Finder.app using natural sort order comparison. Can you give the difference you spotted?
