in reply to Sorting an array using multiple values?

Firstly, what you have written won't work because you use "distance" in your data structure and "Distance" in your comparison. That being said, here you go:

my @loop_sorted = sort { $b->{isPaidLink} <=> $a->{isPaidLink} || $a->{distance} <=> $b->{distance} } @test;

    Sorry, the "Distance" vs "distance" was a typo (I had a local test I played with, to get the values right - before using it on the live site , which used ->{Distance} and not ->{distance})

    Your code worked a charm, thanks! I'll have to remember that for the future, as I'm sure I will need similar code at some point

    Thanks again
