I left this out on purpose :)

You still can do it without manipulating the original data.

print sort { $a <=> $b } <DATA>; __DATA__ 9|microsoft 70|aol 108|netscape 35|mozilla 40|opera

The main issue here is what you want to do with the data at the end, since you're printing it in the same format as it started with, then you don't need to split it only to join it back at the end since sort will work either way.


He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.
