With "aaSorting": [[ -1, "desc" ]] the error TypeError: aoColumns[srcCol] is undefined
is emitted. The table is uploaded to the debugger, code ohejav. aoColumns is optional
I assume .. very nice debugger .. well very nice everything.

    I'm not surprised it gives an error - what is column `-1` ? :-). Columns are array indexes, which are 0+.

    *edit* Ah - Are you thinking of aoColumnDefs and its ability to right count columns. Unfortunately this isn't available in aaSorting . You would need to know the number of columns and use the index for the last column.

    Yes I was. I come from Perl, where array indices can be negative, and my perl-generated tables all have a variable and unpredictable number of columns .. the only thing about them is that it makes most sense to sort on the rightmost column by default ..
