Okay shmem. That first sentence was always a mess, and correcting the grammer whilst leaving the structure intact didn't help much. Is this any better?

How sort actually works internally doesn't really matter. What does matter is that being built-in to the language, it understands Perl's internals, is always available and about as fast as you are likely to achieve.

s/the the/the/ should be s/the the/to the/. That I haven't noticed this before, having now read and re-read this dozens of times, does not surprise me. That many other pairs of eyes have looked right past this, does. Welcome to my world.

Corrections made. Thanks.

    Nice. Now I've got it - the "..., does." was refering to the "doesn't matter" from the previous sentence. Anyways - it's way clearer now.

    clap, clap, thank you - having stuttered as a child I just stumble over repeated words. And, good you showed me the "...,does." construct again ;-)
