    0: #Want to sort a complex data structure by some element
    1: #efficiently?  For example, how do you sort an array
    2: #of strings by their length?  Use the transform:
    3:    @sorted = map { $_->[1] }
    4:    sort { $a->[0] <=> $b->[0] }
    5:    map { [ length $_, $_ ] } @strings;
    7: #Confused?  Put in temporary arrays, 
    8: #just to see what we're doing.
    10: # create a temporary array of anonymous arrays
    11: # (0: length of the string, 1: the string)
    12:    @temp = map { [ length $_, $_ ] } @strings;
    13: # sort by length
    14:    @temp = sort { $a->[0] <=> $b->[0] };
    15: # grab just the strings and put them in @ordered
    16:    @sorted = map { $_->[1] } @temp;
    18: #Knowing the context of certain operations
    19: # and being able to chain them together
    20: # is crucial to a deep and idiomatic
    21: # understanding of Perl.

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.
