in thread Sorting Template Toolkit Array of Hashrefs

So that begs the question ... how to turn the compound expression into a singular key?

Don't :)

If you view the source, you can see the current implementation

If you're smart enough you could alter it to accept  [ agendas', 0, 'agendaDate' ] to sort by agendas.0.agendaDate

If you're really smart, you'll do any such sorting/prep required from within perl and simplify the data structure you give the template ( adjust your "model" )

    Thanks for your reply. And thanks to my "really, really smart" co-worker who not only suggested sorting in Perl, but also provided an example of how to do it:

    my $sorted_results = [ sort { $a->{agendas}->[0]->{agendaDate} cmp $b- +>{agendas}->[0]->{agendaDate} } @$content ];

    "Its not how hard you work, its how much you get done."
