Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all, I am trying to sort an array of arrays, but i am stuck. I have red some sources on the internet, but it is not helping me enough. I hope someone can tell me why i am failing. I am trying to sort this array on the second element. Here is the code:

@ar = ([1,12],[8,3],[4,57],[22,5]); @sort = sort{$a[1]<=>$b[1]}@ar; foreach (@sort){ print "@$_\n";}

The desired output is: 8,3 22,5 1,12 4,57. But all i'm getting is the same sorting as i started with. Tx in advance.
