naturalsort: Natural Ordering

Provides functions related to human natural ordering. It handles adjacent digits in a character sequence as a number so that natural sort function arranges a character vector by their numbers, not digit characters. It is typically seen when operating systems lists file names. For example, a sequence a-1.png, a-2.png, a-10.png looks naturally ordered because 1 < 2 < 10 and natural sort algorithm arranges so whereas general sort algorithms arrange it into a-1.png, a-10.png, a-2.png owing to their third and fourth characters.
