in reply to RFC:A brief tutorial on Perl's native sorting facilities.

By using the built-in cmp function
cmp is not a function, it's an operator. And your link does not lead to the perldoc of cmp, but to the homenode of the user cmp.

Besides that, good job.

    Thanks. Corrected above.

    Now the $64,000 questions:

    • Is there anything in the OP that is not covered elsewhere?
    • Or does it stand alone sufficiently for it to warrent it's addition to Tutorials?
    • If so, where?
    • And how is that done?

      Thanks. Corrected above.

      But now you have:

      "By using the built-in perlopcmp operator [...]"

      ITYM something like "By using the built-in cmp operator [...]"

        How stable is that link? I fell into the trap of using references to the Perl docs on perldoc.org for a while as they were more up to date than those on PM, but it was a mistake. Initially, the site was fine, but after a short while it became flacky, spending more time down than up. And then it simply disappeared.

        Of course, if it was possible to produce properly indexed HTML using pod, we be able to link directly to the section of perlop entitled "Equality operators", which would be a significant improvement. But that ain't gonna happen anytime soon.
