Only inefficiently. If you don't tell Perl to build a hash lookup, you will have to repeatedly scan the array. But you can eliminate the Schwartzian sort:
use strict; use Data::Dumper; $Data::Dumper::Indent = 1; my @vals = qw( 1 2 3 1 3 3 3 43 bob 2 bob 6 2 ); my %freqs; $freqs{$_}++ foreach @vals; my @sorted = sort { $freqs{$b} <=> $freqs{$a} or $a cmp $b } keys %freqs; print Data::Dumper->Dump([\@sorted], ['*sorted']);
Remember that Schwarzian sorts are good when the sort step involves a lot of work. Hash lookups are not that much work. :-)

Incidentally note that way I dump. I had looked that up a long time ago, but I want to start trying to use that for brief one-offs. I think it is rather nice to keep my names intact like that...
