( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
So first sort by signum, but zero go first, then sort normally:
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Test::More; use Test::Deep; my @in = -2 .. 2; my @exp = (0, 1, 2, -2, -1); my @sorted = sort { ((-1, 0, 1)[$a <=> 0] <=> (-1, 0, 1)[$b <=> 0]) || ($a <=> $b) } @in; cmp_deeply([@sorted], [@exp]); done_testing();

Update: It seems comparable to grepfirst, thus slower than sortfirst.

Update 2: This seems to be a bit faster than grepfirst, but still not as fast as sortfirst:

((($a <=> 0) & 3) <=> (($b <=> 0) & 3)) || ($a <=> $b)

map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]

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.
