( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The whole program is a bit complex and does a bunch of stuff that isn't relavent to this issue, but I've cut out everything but this section that shows the problem I'm having.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @h = ( qw( psapp1 psapp psapp2 psepapp1 psepapp psepapp2 psimgprod pspappuat pswebapp2 pswebapp ) ); my @h_sorted = @h[ map { unpack "N", substr($_,-4) } sort map { my $key = $h[$_]; $key =~ s[(\d+)][ pack "N", $1 ]ge; $key . pack "N", $_ } 0..$#h ]; foreach (@h_sorted) { print "$_\n"; };

When I run this program, with my Perl (This is perl, v5.8.6 built for darwin-thread-multi-2level), I get:
psapp psapp1 psapp2 psepapp1 psepapp2 psepapp psimgprod pspappuat pswebapp2 pswebapp
The "psapp" items sort properly, but the "psepapp" and "pswebapp" ones show the problem I'm asking about. Thanks! -s-
