Sorting source code

I admit it sounds a bit ludicrous, but right now I miss an source code aware sort function in my IDE. If you start maintaining large files with loads of structures or functions you often end up paging up/down looking for them – to reduce this time I start sorting them in alphabetic order.

enum vm_OpCode
 Op_NOP =8,

The struct above is another example – I sorted it to easier keep things synchronized – doing so is actually an increase in quality because it means the developer uses less time looking for things and get a better overview faster – each of these also have structs, execute functions etc.
