That's cool! Admittedly, you might be restricted as to perl versions, since it relies on vstring functionality. It occurred to me that there might be a golf like solution involving some kind of GRT. It's probably quite fast as well.

I'll even name it for you: the Gutta Percha Transform :).

    Hm, golfing with GRT? No idea how, but anyway, here's a possible starting point:
    $ perl -le '$,=$/; print @ARGV[ map { unpack N, substr $_, -4 } \ sort map { eval("v$ARGV[$_]") . pack N, $_ } 0 .. $#ARGV ]' \
    OTOH, that previous version could easily be golfed (ok, just a little) by dropping the initial map (which is useful only when using this snippet "for real" - you know, using sprintf and returning a list):
    $ perl -e 'printf "%vd\n", $_ for sort map { eval "v$_" } @ARGV' \
