in thread Sorting Arrays Without using SORT function

If PC isn't allowed to use the sort function, then List::Util is probably even more forbidden.

use strict; use warnings; my @array = qw(h o m e w o r k); while (not isSorted(@array)) { print +(join ", ", @array) . "\r"; my ($x, $y) = (rand(scalar @array), rand(scalar @array)); ($array[$x], $array[$y]) = ($array[$y], $array[$x]); } print "\nSort complete!\n"; print join ", ", @array; sub isSorted { my $x = shift; while (my $y = shift) { return 0 unless ($x cmp $y) < 1; $x = $y; } return 1; }
