in thread RFC: I rewrote a custom sort function, but not sure if it is the best way.

choroba, there are so many rules about names I do not think I can cover them all. I did not cover van/von either. Depending on the country one where the name is being filed, van Helsing could be filed under H (Netherlands and Suriname) or V (Belgium). Van is also a Vietnamese middle name. The Dutch have a lot of surname prefixes which could be added to the surname. I am sure there are other rules I have missed. There are a whole slew of nobiliary particles each with their own sort rules I imagine.

Have a cookie and a very nice day!

[stevieb]: interestingly enough, someone else got my Devel::Examine:: Subs distribution for their PRC, and I applaud the change. This dist is extremely complicated and mostly obfu, but the person doing it understood PPI enough to change...
[stevieb]: ...something I had overlooked in the extreme depths of the core functionality. After merging, then a couple of extra tweaks, I still have 100% test coverage. Yay for people who write tests!
