( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
To add to Corion's comment the arrays in your original post and in your follow up are different.

It's hard to help if the question keeps moving!

update: the following is wrong :-(

Each element in your follow up array is the reverse of those in the origninal. (There's a hint in there!)

With that observation and another look at the docs I was able to sort the array in the order you're looking for using the method suggested by Corion.

You didn't say my $sort = (... either.

update 2:

Pursuing the reverse theme, perhaps you could consider an intermediate step:

#!/bin/perl5 use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my @sort = qw( 05-11-2006 01-01-2005 04-12-2005 22-03-2005 ); my @reversed = map { join '', substr($_, 6), substr($_, 3,2), substr($_, 0,2) } @sort; print Dumper(\@reversed); __DATA__ ---------- Capture Output ---------- > "C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe" $VAR1 = [ '20061105', '20050101', '20051204', '20050322' ]; > Terminated with exit code 0.
