in reply to Twisted sort requirements

Greetings all,
A little late I see but here is what I would do...
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @things_to_sort = ( { author => 'bart', title => 'skateboarding' }, { author => 'lisa', title => 'postmodernism' }, { author => 'marge', title => 'hairstyles' }, { author => 'lisa', title => 'THIS BOOK FIRST' }, { author => 'homer', title => 'donuts' }, { author => 'bart', title => 'coolness' } ); #this begs for a new structure. #lets use a hash. my %authors_books; #turn your AoH's into a HoA's #see perldsc for reference foreach (@things_to_sort){ push @{$authors_books{$_->{author}}}, $_->{title}; } #sort the books for each author foreach my $author (keys %authors_books){ @{$authors_books{$author}} = sort{ $a eq "THIS BOOK FIRST" && -1 or $b eq "THIS BOOK FIRST" && 1 or $a cmp $b }@{$authors_books{$author}}; } #figure out who to display first. my @display_keys = sort{ (grep /THIS BOOK FIRST/, @{$authors_books{$a}}) && -1 or (grep /THIS BOOK FIRST/, @{$authors_books{$b}}) && 1 or $a cmp $b } keys %authors_books; #display the information. foreach my $display_key (@display_keys){ print "$display_key books:\n"; foreach (@{$authors_books{$display_key}}){ print "\t$_\n"; } } exit;
The Output
lisa books: THIS BOOK FIRST postmodernism bart books: coolness skateboarding homer books: donuts marge books: hairstyles

P.S.
thanks davido for the sort idea.

[makita]: I am doing this:
[makita]: my $sig = $wss->signature( schema => $wsdl, token => $token, sign_types=>'wsa: Action','wsa:To', 'wsu:Timestamp', 'wsa:MessageID',' SOAP-ENV:Body', signer=>DSIG_RSA_S HA1, public_key => $cert,
[Corion]: Oof, I haven't done much with signing SOAP requests. markov is usually somebody good to ask via mail ;)
[makita]: I need to create a SOAP call where are signed more types not only the body
[makita]: I am inspecting it second day :)
[makita]: Thanks
[Discipulus]: better to ask a full SOPW
