I'm looking at the Help documentation for Generative Components 10.06.00.93) and it points to simple sorting routines using Sort() and SortIndices().
However I don't see these listed as built-in functions - am I missing something or is the help outdated?
Short of writing an all out sorting function, is there a shorthand route to sorting a random point list, by it Z values?
Those functions are now available as list methods. However, you can still use them as a global function.
There are two ways of sorting.
We can use the above expression in an expression node. Please have a look at the sample example SortedPoints.gct.

Thanks for the help - I have seen this example before, so knew it could be done, but lock-down must be shutting off parts of my brain.The query expression should work fine for my needs.
However, I don't see Sort and a few others of the list functions like Add, AddFrom, Difference, etc. in the Expression Builder list, or in inteli-sense when trying to write the notation. So was having a hard time recognising how to implement what I see in the help documentation in an actual Node.
Other List functions like FilledList, Interleave, Series, etc are displayed, so I know they are accessible.
