I have a script that works just fine on a NFS mount, when listing a folder of items.
They list properly 1,2,3 or A, B, C as intended by what every it is that lists them by name. The mount recently changed to a CIFS/SMB file server. Now I am getting a weird return on my list. 4, 6, 8, 11, 13, 1, 3 etc…
My script is not broken, it does what it has always done, except that the items are not being interated alphanumerically.
:?: Where is it documented that “System Events” or Finder will list a folder using the “list folder” returns a list alphanumerically.
set sourceFolder to alias "path:to:folder:" set these_items to list folder sourceFolder without invisibles repeat with aItem in these_items set aItem to aItem as string set path2File to sourceFolder & aItem as string set alias2File to path2File as alias set infoRec to info for alias2File set infoRecList to infoRec display dialog infoRecList as text end repeat
