in reply to Using map and grep to Sort one list using another list

Do you mean like this?

my @result = map { my $key = $_; grep m/^\d\|\d\|\d\|$key\|\d$/, @records } @keys +;

-M

    You will have undefined values in your @result array.

    the above is plain wrong--

    --shmem

      I don't see that happening. Perhaps I have missed something.

      use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my @keys = qw{a e i o u}; my @records = qw{ 1|2|3|d|4 1|2|3|a|4 1|2|3|d|4 1|2|3|o|4}; my @result = map { my $key = $_; grep { m{^(?:\d\|){3}$key\|\d$} } @records } @keys; my $dd = Data::Dumper->new([\@result], [qw{*result}]); print $dd->Dumpxs();

      produces

      @result = ( '1|2|3|a|4', '1|2|3|o|4' );

      Cheers,

      My take on this was rather that when the grep fails to produce a match, it returns an empty list to map which then operates on no extra entries - i.e. doing nothing rather than constructing an undefined value.
