I think what Randal L. Schwartz was referring to, when he said "cache it for the sort," was to use a very common sort optimization technique called, not coincidentally, the Schwartzian Transform.

@sorted = map { $_->[0] } sort { $a->[1] <=> $b->[1] } map { [ $_, (-s $_) ] } @unsorted;

[ e d @ h a l l e y . c c ]
