in reply to Sorting Array in Place

Agree, it will be nice if sort behaves in such a way:

  1. if the parm being passed in is a list, behave in the traditional way;
  2. if the parm being passed in is a ref to an array, do an in-place sort as you suggested.

    Well, I'm toying with the idea of a module that provides a sort_inplace function which acts a lot like sort but takes array references as a sort of stop-gap solution. Is there any way to get $a and $b to represent the first two values of @_ as in sort? See my scratchpad for some code and a more detailed description.
