in thread How to sort output?

It's a numeric sort so the spaceship (<=>) is appropriate rather than the string cmp operator. Consider how '2', '100' and '11' sort for example.

    Thanks, I've put that into play (with the suggested <=> replacement), and it seems to be working great!

    Thanks to everybody who responded!

[Lady_Aleena]: Your Mother, how would that work? I'm having a hard time understanding the pod.
[Your Mother]: $dir->chidren, grep {} $file->slurp &c &c. :P
[Your Mother]: Stick with what you know. Or post a SOPW and if it's not complicated I guarantee someone will answer; me if it's straightforward and no one else gets it better first.

[Lady_Aleena]: Um, how does grep do multiline? print "$file:$_" if grep { /get_(array|hash| data)\(.+\)/ } $_; only returns the same 18 lines the command line grep does.
[Lady_Aleena]: my scratchpad has what I have so far.
[choroba]: what do you mean by multiline?
[Discipulus]: thanks 1nickt!
