in reply to <=> vs cmp

You can sort names and numbers with sort, and then have pretty clean code:

my $code = 'untested; no Perl on this machine...'; my @numbers = qw (5 6 7 2 4 5); my @names = qw(Larry Randal Tom Jon); @numbers = sort @numbers; @names = sort @names; foreach(@numbers){ print "$_\n"; } foreach(@names){ print "$_\n"; }
...I admit that I may be missing the point, since sort uses <=> internally, by default...
