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

Down and dirty hacks are available of course. For everyday use I have come up with this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use locale; my @list = ('maceira', 'mac alister', 'mac loughlin', 'san esteban', ' +sangregorio', 'san zoilo'); sub keeping_spaces { my $aa = $a; my $bb = $b; for ($aa) { tr/ /A/; } for ($bb) { tr/ /A/; } return $aa cmp $bb; } print "$_\n" for sort keeping_spaces @list;

Which outputs what we would expect:

mac alister mac loughlin maceira san esteban san zoilo sangregorio

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
