in reply to sorting Array of hashes

Why do you want to stort it?

The hash just stores your data, when you have it printed out, that's just one particular form of representation.
(An internal quirk if you will.)

You may need sorting when you extract the data from the hash then.

Your example looks a bit like Data::Dumper output. If my assumtion is right, setting $Data::Dumper::Sortkeys = 1; will probably do what you want.

If it is more complicated, you will have to use the sort funtion.
