in thread Sorting array, getting modification of read-only value error
I fixed the ==, got rid of $x. @char is used somewhere else where it actually is an array so I borrowed the code from that and the $x stuck in there, and it wasn't causing a problem so I left it. I was trying to use $a=(); to make the sort work, in case I had defined $a and $b earlier and it was messing up the sort. I'll look up the other point you made in #4 to help with file opening. I know all this probably annoys you guys, but I'm still learning how to keep my code neat. syntax, then logic, then neatness I guess is the order in my book. But, that's what the forum is for, so we can all learn. I'm very thankful for your help and input.
