Hi,
arkturuz, will even work if the regex matches the values to be sorted like this:

chomp(my @files = <DATA>); ## added sub by_id { # extract numbers my ($A) = $a =~ /.+?-(\d+)\..+$/; # changed my ($B) = $b =~ /.+?-(\d+)\..+$/; # changed # return comparison return $A <=> $B; } for my $f (sort by_id @files) { print $f,$/; } __DATA__ abcd1_abc_123456.abc1a_A.201307290800-0900-0.gz abcd1_abc_123456.abc1a_A.201307290800-0900-1.gz abcd1_abc_123456.abc1a_A.201307290800-0900-10.gz abcd1_abc_123456.abc1a_A.201307290800-0900-11.gz abcd1_abc_123456.abc1a_A.201307290800-0900-2.gz abcd1_abc_123456.abc1a_A.201307290800-0900-3.gz

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
