Here's something completely different - it doesn't use a sort !

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; # https://perlmonks.org/?node_id=11106277 use warnings; my @array = ( "APPLE", "ORANGE", "PEACH", # Use this for the O +RDER "GRAPE", "BANANA", "PINEAPPLE" ); my @subset = ( "PINEAPPLE", "GRAPE", "APPLE" ); # A required subset +but NOT # in the required order my %order; @order{ @array } = 0 .. $#array; my @results; @results[ @order{ @subset } ] = @subset; @results = grep defined, @results; print "results: @results\n";

Just kidding, this is called a distribution sort.
