Can you zero-pad the switch bit? So 1/0/2 becomes 01/0/02? That 
would probably be an easy way to solve it.

If that isn't easy from the file creation end, you could use awk to 
do it for you in a pipeline. If you know awk that's pretty easy, if 
not ask me and I'll come up with an incomprehensible but concise bit 
for you :)
