in reply to ColorRamp1785

my @map = sort{ $a <=> $::b } keys %map;

Why bother using $::b? I thought it was just shorthand for $main::b (and $::main::b and so on :P).

I'm so adjective, I verb nouns!

chomp; # nom nom nom

    Because I'm using my $b for one of the rgb triple, and without the ::, perl will see that and attempt to use it instead of $::b, and fail with Can't use "my $b" in sort comparison. I guess I should have used $::a for balance--and now have.

      Oh, I see. Thanks for explaining it to me (",)

      (And you should update the lone subroutine at the top of the node too). Err, you did while I was posting :P
