in thread Sorting colon-delimited records

What you are describing is the basic idea behind the Schwartzian Transform. See my write-up elsewhere in this thread for some links with more information. The idea is that you do the expensive operation (in this case, it's split) once and use a data structure to store the result. You then sort on the results and extract the original information when done. Our very own merlyn was the first (AFAIK) to apply his twisted mind to this problem and come up with a very perlish (or lispish depending on your mother tongue) method of doing this in one fell swoop using map.

[ambrus]: ambrus's scratchpad
[ambrus]: Also, I was wrong, apparently you have to support both periodic and one-shot timers in an AnyEvent backend
[Corion]: ambrus: That looks deceptively simple, but maybe that's simply all that's needed. Which would be great! I hope I get to test it tomorrow, thanks!!
[choroba]: Hm, unrelated question.
[ambrus]: I added a timer implementation to ambrus's scratchpad as well, again the whole thing is completely untested and probably has more bugs than lines
[choroba]: Anyone using anything to validate json contents of a REST service?
[moritz]: choroba in python I use jsonschema
[moritz]: I'm sure there's a Perl implementation of it too
[choroba]: it seems Kelp and similar help you a lot with dispatching, but how to do something similar with contents?
