in reply to sort based upon the partial data

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; sub func { $a =~ s/.*_(\d+)$/$1/; $b =~ s/.*_(\d+)$/$1/; $a <=> $b; } my @array = ("0x4b82_555","0x4b82_5", "0x4b82_58","0x4b82_651", "0x4b8 +2_551"); my @result = sort func @array; print "@result";

The above code will give the result as you want.
