Do I stand correct when I say that there is no sort comparison method available for numeric data? I've only found compareTo and caselessCompareTo, which both work on strings and give incorrect result for numeric data unless left-padded with zeroes. Sounds like an oversight to me, doesn't it? 

Not an oversight.  The result of everything being a string in Rexx.

You can sort an array of numbers by writing your own comparator class and use that.  

In a Rexx implementation of a list-view sort, use the strict comparison operators.

The internal list-view sort only works with strings.
