in reply to Sorting The Date format Values without using any perl modules.

Use Time::Local to convert the dates to 'seconds since epoch' values, sort them, then use localtime or gmtime to convert back to a human-readable format. This assumes you want the dates sorted chronologically, and not by month or day number...

Or does that count as a 'Date Sort' module? ;-)
