This should work:

arrayToSort = ["d","C","b","A"];

It doesn't do anything (not even error).

This should also work:

listToSort = "d,C,b,A";
sortedList = listToSort.listSort(compareNoCase);

This one just errors:
You have specified invalid sorting inputs.
It could be a UDF functions or type.

That's not correct. A BIF should also work. More details & test cases in the blog article.

I think this should be generalized that any function that takes a callback should be able to accept a BIF, not just UDF.

Hi all, And -any- BIF, not just -certain- BIFs, right? Adobe closed w/ "these functions due to internal compiler optimizations and transformations can't be made first class". Thanks!, -Aaron
