in thread Sorting Issues :(

Try this (in the regex...):
$time =~ /^(\d{1,2}):(\d\d)\s?([APM]{2})$/ #----------------------------^ Added this # And actually, now that I come to think of it, the # dealing with AM or PM problems may be better sorted using: $time =~ /^(\d{1,2}):(\d\d)\s?(AM|PM)$/

Note that you ought to use this regex after the user submits the data and before you enter it, so that if a user gives something bogus, you catch it then, before the data goes in, as opposed to afterwards during the sort.
