Re: How do I create a sort sub on-the-fly?
in thread How do I create a sort sub on-the-fly?
Yes, I wrote one using Sort::Fields that was really short and quick. It seems that most new perl programmers don't like to use modules. Given a choice (and my student here had a choice), most neophytes will opt for the approach that doesn't involve installing a new module. Even after I explain that most modules don't require permission from a sys admin to install.
Thanks for your reply,
