Hi Alex,

Yes, I know it is easy. Xlog did have sorting in a previous version (sorting 
by callsign), but I took it out once the 'find' finction was written. The 
problem with sorting by date, is the date format itself. I would have to 
write a function that sorts things like:

05 apr 2002
08 jan 2002
31 dec 2001
23 sep 2001

Combined with the GMT time.
This means it is not straightforward. A problem could also be that with the 
different locales supported by xlog, I would have to go through all the 
languages and find out what the name of the month for that language is. It is 
do-able but kindof difficult.

Maybe there is a glibc function that translates date strings into different 
langauges, but I doubt it.
