Yes, but if it's spelled with a 'ph' instead of an 'f' and if 'beryl' is
placed before 'bob.'

Per Webster's, "lexicographical" means of or relating to "lexicography"
which means the editing or making of a dictionary; the principles and
practices of dictionary making.

Subject: character string order

I have a bunch of character strings that are sorted as follows:

adam < armageddon < bob < beryl

The programmers are calling this "lexicografical order", but the closest
I've found is "lexicografic". Does the word "lexicografical" exist?
Does either of these words describe the order I'm using?
