Well, the code provided does no sorting. What is it you want it to do?

If you want it to basically do what it's doing, but return the output in sorted order, this should work.

my $editlist = $FORM{'list'}; open(FILE, "$datadir/$editlist.txt") or error_message("Can't find data file - $datadir/$editlist.txt."); my $ccc = 0; my @out; while (<FILE>){ my ($two, $one, $nochop) = split(/,/); if ($one =~ /.*\@.*\..*/) { push @out, "$two,$one\n"; $ccc++; } } close(FILE); print sort @out;
Otherwise, you'll have to be a bit clearer about what you're expecting. I made a few incidental changes, reading the file in one line at a time instead of all at once, etc, but they're just for style. The heart of it is, instead of outputting one at a time, push them into an array you can sort and output. If that's what you want to do.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
