in reply to Variance in sort order (collation) {Solved: needed sharper eyes}

There does seem to be a problem in multiple keys sort:
$last[$a] cmp $last[$b] or $first[$a] cmp $last[$b]
should be:
my @index = sort { $last[$a] cmp $last[$b] or $first[$a] cmp $first[$b] } 0 .. $#first; sort on multiple keys Adler, Rich Jackson, Jon Jones, Fred Jones, John Smith, Joe Smith, John But, testing, single sort (cmp): Fred Joe John John Jon Rich
