Thanks for trying that out. Deparse is a good idea, I get the same results as you except for case two, where my Deparse says
say sort('get_keys' ());
vs your
say((sort get_keys ()));

Interestingly, feeding my Deparse output back to perl leads to a syntax error. Your version seems to indicate what perl is doing here. Trying to sort the empty list () with the compare-function get_keys, hence the empty return.

[ambrus]: This sheet has sharp needle-like parts, 0.004 long and less than 0.001 wide, that can get bent to point outwards, and one of these cut into my palm when I lifted the box.
[ambrus]: So now when I choose what motherboard to buy for my new home computer, I have one more specific property to guide me. Useful, because there's so many different boards to choose from.
[Corion]: Well, no computer will start up without the blood sacrifice being made!
[Corion]: I used to cut me on PC cases, but they've gotten better or I don't let blood that easy anymore ;)
