in reply to Sort and related stuff

I just added:

my @dummy=sort byVersion ();

To the top of my first example and that actually 'solves'
the problem. No error message appeared and the program actually
returns:

./ssrmpilot@IBP-test$ ./sort.s
1.1.1.1 is less than 1.1.1.2

I guess this means that when the compiler finds a certain
subroutine in combination with sort somewhere in the
code, it decides that it must be a 'sort'-function and will
therefore be treated different than a regular subroutine ...

.... I'm still puzzled .... ;-)

[Tanktalus]: perldigious: I'm 20 years in, and I don't want to move ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, right, it searches files for a pattern. pcregrep is supposed to do the same thing with the addition of being able to search multiline.
[erix]: ah, pcregrep is a stanalone program?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: pcre stands for 'Perl Compatible Regular Expressions'.
[erix]: ok, ok, I thought you meant the engine
[perldigious]: Tanktalus: Ha, understandable, that does make it harder when you don't want to move. I assume you are looking at remote work from home jobs too?
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I'm looking at a lot of remote work - I've been working from home since 2002, so I know how to do the work from remote, I just need a new employer ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I wouldn't know how to get a script to do what the greps do in one line.
[perldigious]: Even working for a large software engineering contractor that's willing to do remote could be an option. The fortune 500 company at $job-- I worked for had quite a lot of that work to hire out to large contractors.
