( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Fellow Monks, I am having an issue with sorting an non-standard set of elements, a list of Software Levels for multiple elements in our network. The network Elements are in the format Major.Minor.Load(LoadVersion) and meet the regex
/\d+\.\d+\.\d+\w*/

in formatting. It might just be a very long week, but I am having an issue finding the all ecompassing way to sort these. *NOTE the final \w* is a letter that may or may not be there (hence the *) and should be sorted in a
my @sort = sort($prevLoadVersion, $currLoadVersion); my $max = shift @sort;
fashion.
