perldoc perldelta, for 5.6.1 says the following about sort:

Simple sort() using { $a <=> $b } and the like are optimized

Many common sort() operations using a simple inlined block are now optimized for faster performance.

Mind you, I was under the impression that this optimisation occurred earlier, sometime back around the 5.004 to 5.005 timeframe. I'll have to go and look on some of my older machines.
print@_{sort keys %_},$/if%_=split//,'= & *a?b:e\f/h^h!j+n,o@o;r$s-t%t#u'

[hippo]: Yary: There are a few useful pointers in I need perl coding standards
[hippo]: ... and a boatload of good stuff in On Coding Standards and Code Reviews
[Yary]: Looking at system pm's, looks like it's "package" on the first line, then POD, then "use 5.xyz;use strict; use warnings; use modules..."
[Yary]: ah thanks for those links
[hippo]: Just bear in mind that all such ideas are subjective.
[choroba]: There might be a different standard at the shop you write the code for.
[choroba]: The order of package - (strict+warnings | warnings+strict) - modules makes sense, POD and strict-warnings order are not so important
