I'm finding it hard to follow your question and example code.

Will something like the following work? If not please explain yourself more?

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @labels = qw(B0001R B1001R B4356); for my $label (sort @labels) { print "$label\n"; }

    Hi, thanks for the response. The @tapes_to_eject array has the tape numbers but the are not in order.

    $ejected_tapes=0 ; #my @tapes_to_eject=sort @_ ; my @tapes_to_eject=@_ ; #my @tapes_to_eject=sort { substr($a, 1) <=> substr($b, 1)} @_ +; # Test #print "@_";

    Then I run them through the eject command

    `/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmchange -res -multi_eject -w -rn $robot_num +-rt tld -rh $robot_host -ml $\@_[0]:$\@_[1]:$\@_[2]:$\@_[3]:$\@_[4]:$ +\@_[5]:$\@_[6]:$\@_[7]:$\@_[8]:$\@_[9]:$\@_[10]:$\@_[11]:$\@_[12]:$\@ +_[13]:$\@_[14]:$\@_[15]:$\@_[16]:$\@_[17]:$\@_[18]:$\@_[19]:$\@_[20]: +$\@_[21]:$\@_[22]:$\@_[23]:$\@_[24]:$\@_[25]:$\@_[26]:$\@_[27]:$\@_[2 +8]:$\@_[29]:$\@_[30]:$\@_[31]:$\@_[32]:$\@_[33]:$\@_[34]:$\@_[35]:$\@ +_[36]:$\@_[37]:$\@_[38]:$\@_[39]:$\@_[40]:$\@_[41]:$\@_[42]:$\@_[43]: +$\@_[44]:$\@_[45]:$\@_[46]:$\@_[47]:$\@_[48]:$\@_[49]:$\@_[50]:$\@_[5 +1]` ;

    The problem the tape numbers in @tapes_to_eject are not sorted. Thanks for looking
