in thread How to sort hash tables alpha-numeric

This works perfect although I don't understand yet 100% how the Schwartzian transform works. Their is one small problem that I have with the code is that it should look for all leading characters to be split because now it substr only one but it could be more. (CR30-1 for example) So I tried to modify the code but no success.
sub sorted { return map { $_->[0] } sort { $a->[1] <=> $b->[1] || $a->[2] <=> $b->[2] } map { [ $_, split("-", s/^[A-Z]+//) ] } @_; } foreach my $key (sorted(keys %keys)) { print "'$key' => ", $keys{$key}, "\n"; foreach my $subkey (sorted(keys %{$keys{$key}})) { print " '$subkey' => $keys{$key}->{$subkey}\n"; } }

    The Schwartzian Transform is explained here by the person after who this sorting technique is named.

    A modified version of the sorted routine which also takes the leading letters into account:

    sub sorted { return map { $_->[0] } sort { $a->[1] cmp $b->[1] || $a->[2] <=> $b->[2] || $a->[3] <=> $b->[3] } map { [ $_, (/([A-Z]+)(\d+)(?:-(\d+)){1,2}/) ] } @_; }
    The split function is replaced by a regex which returns a list of letters and the numbers.
