This tool can sort outline numbers, e.g. 220.127.116.11, that would be out of order using a typical sort function.
Consider the this table which has a 'Structure ID' column that is not sorted properly.
When a normal sort function is used on the 'Structure ID' column, the 10's appear before the 2's. This is because the typical sort algorithm checks each character in each string in sequence; it doesn't recognize the integer values separated by the period.
