If you want the sort order to appear in "numeric order of the names", you can define a special sort order. Here I use a hash table to give the "rules" to sort.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my @array = qw(one two three four five six seven eight nine ten); print "The original array contains -\n @array \n"; my @sorted = sort @array; print "The sorted array contains:\n @sorted \n"; my %order =( one => 1, two => 2, three => 3, four => 4, five => 5, six => 6, seven => 7, eight => 8, nine => 9, ten => 10); @sorted = sort{ $order{$a} <=> $order{$b}} @sorted; print "Now The sorted array contains:\n @sorted \n"; __END__ The original array contains - one two three four five six seven eight nine ten The sorted array contains: eight five four nine one seven six ten three two Now The sorted array contains: one two three four five six seven eight nine ten
