Re^2: short sorts

in reply to Re: short sorts
in thread short sorts

Thank you for pointing that out to me. I changed the last lines of the subroutine to include tobyink's suggestion of croak above in Re: short sorts. So now I have a more explicit conditional just to keep things tidy. Thanks! :)

if ($type) { croak "$type is not supported" if !exists $sorts{$type}; return $sorts{$type}->($a,$b); } else { my $random_sort = (keys %sorts)[rand (keys %sorts)]; return $sorts{$random_sort}->($a,$b); }

Update

Since the random sort is not acting as I expected, I decided to just let the subroutine die there.

if ($type) { croak "$type is not supported" if !exists $sorts{$type}; return $sorts{$type}->($a,$b); } else { die "A sort type was not selected."; }
Have a cookie and a very nice day!
