in reply to Need help with a script

You want something like this (untested):

my @sorted = sort {my @A = (split '\|', $a)[4, 5]; my @B = (split '\|', $b)[4, 5]; $A[0] cmp $B[0] || $A[1] <=> $B[1]} @unsorted;

    Trivial bug: splits first operand is a regular expression, not a string, so you need to escape the alternation metacharacter. I used to make that mistake all the time too.
