sorted list as phonebook substitute


until now, I was happy with my little html table for my addresses. Now,
I have some hundred but still don't want to program php/mysql. I would
be nice to choose between address tables sorted by A to Z. Does anybody
know of a script to solve this problem? Many thanks!

The Array object has a sort method, so if you put the names (Last-name
first) into an array, it may make your job a little easier. But putting them
into a database, and using server side programming like JSP, PHP, ASP, Perl,
etc - would make it easier to maintain. You can sort by any field using
SQL - (its just more flexible.)

Hi Lee,

currently, I have a simple HTML-table (e.g. <tr>/<td>) with some dozen
addresses in alphabetical order. Looks quite nice. But the number of
addresses has grown too much (ok, 114 :-). Now, I want to slice the list
in several sublists. I think of 26 sublists from 'A' to 'Z'.

I could make a new html-page with 26 characters as some kind of
navigational-bar which I link to the separate sublists. One click on the
char-link opens the corresponding sublist.

But is there a nicer solution? For example, putting the whole address
list inside the html-page, I choose the character for sorting via
drop-down-field and a javascript "constructs " the new html-page
on-the-fly on client side. Is this a good idea? I have no PHP/MYSQL on
the server (which would easen the job). Thanks for your help!

I need to implement a sorted (ordered) list. STL has no sorted list type as far as I know. Is there a (straight) way to implement a sorted list using STL? BTW: The type of items in the list will be a class. Is it necessary to implement the > or < operators or to write a compare-function that returns the larger or smaller of two classes? Ideally, the list begins with the smallest element. Cheers, Matthias
