How do you sort an XML file?
« on: June 23, 2010, 11:17:53 AM »
You have an XML file containing data. You have a frequent need to sort this XML file by various text elements within the XML file: last update time, name, category, image resolution, for example. How do you do it? (You can use a command line program or a GUI, or maybe there's some way to do this in Excel?)

Thanks Veign, that looks useful and reminded me of a powershell script I ran across when searching for ways to configure Intellitype (which also uses an xml file).
