Output:

Sorted using standard sorting:
ArrayObject Object

        (
            [3] => geeks02
            [2] => geeks1
            [0] => geeks100
            [1] => geeks99

Sorted using Natural ordering:
ArrayObject Object
(
    [storage:ArrayObject:private] => Array

            [3] => geeks02
            [2] => geeks1
