( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
A quick search of the Date::Manip perldoc yields this:
use Date::Manip qw(ParseDate Date_Cmp); sub sortDate { my($date1, $date2); $date1 = &ParseDate($a); $date2 = &ParseDate($b); return (&Date_Cmp($date1,$date2)); } my @dates = ("Fri 16 Aug 96", "Mon 19 Aug 96", "Thu 15 Aug 96"); my @i = sort &sortDate @dates;
(edited somewhat for clarity)

You could also write this as:

my @i = sort { &Date_Cmp(&ParseDate($a),&ParseDate($b)) } @dates;

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
