in reply to Schwartzian Transform and memory allocation.

More clarification here.. I do actually use a variable as an indice, as thelenm pointed out. The column to be sorted on is passed via query string and is plugged into the sort. Ex:

@file_data = map { $_->[0] } sort { $a->[$variable] cmp $b->[$variable] } map { [ $_, (split(/\|/)) ] } @file_data;

    In that case, you could easily save some memory:
    @file_data = map { $_ -> [0]} sort { $a -> [1] cmp $b -> [1]} map {[$_ => (split /\|/) [$variable - 1]]} @file_data;
    No need to use a 759 41 element arrays if you can do it with just 2 elements!

      Modifying my original code as per Abigail-II's suggestion dropped memory usage an entire meg. Abigail-II++.

    Why split once for the Schwartzian Transform then again for the output?
    open FILE, "<$data_file"; my @file_data = sort { $a->[$variable-1] cmp $b->[$variable-1] }, map [ split(/\|/) ], <FILE>; close FILE; print qq(<TABLE BORDER="1">); for my $row (@file_data){ print ( qq(<TR>), map(qq(<TD>$_</TD>), @$row), qq(</TR>) ); } print qq(</TABLE>);

      I think the

      sort { $a->[$variable-1] cmp $b->[$variable-1] },

      line should be

      sort { $a->[$variable] cmp $b->[$variable] },

      The -1 was added by abigail to skip over the $_ that was tacked on at the beginning of the anon array. You're no longer doing that.

        No, actually, Abigail added the -1 because there was no longer an extra element to skip over. It doesn't make sense to subtract 1 to skip over an extra element, does it? The same premise holds true in my snippet as well.
