( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

One last hurdle,

What if you want to print out the list not alphabetically, but by how many occurances of the word occur? The easiest way to do this would be an ST1. Is an ST easy to maintain?

Correct me if i'm wrong but i believe that Java has a method of doing this immediately (which is probably why they used the Tree to print it) whereas Perl can do it readily, but it's harder to understand for the common Java programmer, not to mention a few Perl programmers. Who wins maintainability this time?
