    "sorting. very useful."

jesuashok, there are 17 documents at that address.  Which one(s) did you find useful?

Or do you just mean that any node called "sorting", which gives so many references, must be a good answer to a node called Conditional Sorting (Since they both have "sorting" in their titles)?

Going by that logic, wouldn't this be an even better link?  How about one with even more results?

Hopefully you can see my point here.  I've noticed recently that you tend to throw links at questions without giving much other context:

But have you considered that most of the Seekers of Perl Wisdom already know how to search for themselves?  They are not usually asking for a link to merely tangentially-related material, they are asking for specific advice, and experience directly applicable to their unique circumstances.

Please bear these things in mind, before rushing to do a search for the first similar-sounding hit that comes up.  As always, it's best if you have a firsthand knowledge of the problem at hand.  But when you don't, it may be better to exercise patience and restraint, and let more relevant posts prevail.
