in reply to For Loops and Reversing output

Another way to do it, without icky C-style for loops:

my $input = 'somelist'; open(my $in, "<", $input) or die "Could not open $input because $!\n"; my @sorted = sort map { chomp; "\t$_\n" } <$in>; close ($in); print @sorted; my @rocks; push @rocks, pop @sorted while @sorted; print "\n"; print "The names, backwards, are:\n", @rocks;

Or another way, that doesn't destroy @sorted in the process:

my @rocks = sort { $b cmp $a } @sorted;

Sanity? Oh, yeah, I've got all kinds of sanity. In fact, I've developed whole new kinds of sanity. You can just call me "Mister Sanity". Why, I've got so much sanity it's driving me crazy.
