in thread Perl is dying

It is one level of indirection harder and perhaps doesn't have as many "cool points."

    By "It", did you mean Aristotle's method or GRT|ST?

      Sorting the indexes is one step removed from sorting the elements directly.

    I admit I never thought about the former. I did think of the latter, and itís consistent with one of the weaknesses I see in the Perl community (namely the tendency to pick clever and shorter-looking solutions), which is why I will now often point out this approach when people talk about the ST.

    Hmm. Interesting thought. It wonít stop me from advocating this approach, but itís a much more complete explanation of the STís prevalence than I had before.
