The above code hardly even resembles Perl as I know it. Got a lot to learn... I've heard at work they use 'map' regularly (I wouldn't say 'frequently'--something about it not processing efficiently with mysql in some contexts). I'll need to read up on that.

    I can't say I'd choose cowdawg's approach for this question, because map is a bit ill suited for this specific problem. Athanasius's is probably the most idiomatic while still being easy to understand.

[Corion]: Mhmm. I'm writing a database export, and two supposedly identical files compress to different sizes... So either the order of rows is different (which would be OK) or something else is bad (which wouldn't be OK). I guess I have to test with smaller tables
