in reply to Sorting on Section Numbers

Here is my version. I *think* it should work for all cases. I'll break it down if anyone is curious.

@sorted = map { $_->[0] } sort { $x=1; while (defined $a->[1][$x]) { defined $b->[1][$x] or return -1; if ($x%2) { ## Strict numeric comparison return 1 if $a->[1][$x] > $b->[1][$x]; return -1 if $a->[1][$x] < $b->[1][$x]; } else { ## Non-numeric comparison return 1 if $a->[1][$x] gt $b->[1][$x]; return -1 if $a->[1][$x] lt $b->[1][$x]; } $x++; } return defined $b->[1][$x] ? 1 : 0; } map { [$_, [split(/(\d+)/, $_)]] } @unsorted;
