in reply to Being helpful to a fault?

The second is more of a leading question that folks here have probably seen before: When someone asks how to achieve a particular result in order to gain some advantage in their work, and this is likely or certain to create some larger problem, do you just answer the question, or do you point out the larger problem?

graff,

I can't possibly imagine why you would want to ask such a question. Especially since you acknowledge that it has been asked before, and have read enough nodes yourself to know how monks answer questions.

Please give up this endeavor and use Perl's builtin sort.
