Sorry, not in 4DOS; not even in TCC/LE. The /O (order) option was added in
TCC version 11.
You can use the DIR command to create an ordered list of the files to be
processed in a temporary file (or in the clipboard), and retrieve them
(WARNING! NOT TESTED!):
dir /b /o:d acc* > clip:
( for %a in (@clip:) type %a ) > logneu.txt
Note that instead of redirecting each TYPE command individually the output
of the whole FOR loop is redirected. This is not essential, it is just a
techniqued you may not be aware of.
