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

That eq definitely does not make sense. I can guess what was in your mind, you probably thought that by using 'eq', sort will group elements for you base on how common they are. No, that is not what sort does. You have to tell sort "between each pair of two elements, how they shall be ordered".

You are looking for something like:

use Data::Dumper; my @list = ('10.1.1.1', '10.1.1.2', '10.2.2.1', '10.2.2.2'); @list = sort intermix @list; print Dumper(@list); sub intermix { return ( substr( $a, 0, rindex($a, '.')) gt substr( $b, 0, rindex($b, '.')) ) ? 1 : 0; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
