( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

And bringing up the rear, might as well have a GRT example:

c:\@Work\Perl\monks>perl use strict; use warnings; print "perl version $] \n"; my @unsorted = qw( ); my $delim = '?'; sub decorate { return pack 'a* a a*', m{ /search/ ([^\Q$delim\E]*) } +xms, $delim, $_; } sub undecorate { return m{ [\Q$delim\E] (.*) }xms; } my @sorted = map undecorate(), sort # map { print("== '$_' \n"); $_; } # for debug map decorate(), @unsorted ; print "'$_' \n" for @sorted; __END__ perl version 5.008009 '' '' '' '' ''


sub decorate   { return pack 'a* a a*', m{ /search/ ([^\Q$delim\E]*) }xms, $delim, $_; }
The use of pack in this function is overkill. join achieves the same effect with a little bit less overhead and arguably more clarity:
    sub decorate { return join '', m{ /search/ ([^\Q$delim\E]*) }xms, $delim, $_; }

Give a man a fish:  <%-{-{-{-<
