"'gt' refers to the size of the string"

No. In your code, gt looks at "dictionary sequence".

If string size/length is what you wanted, say length($str) expliciltly.

use Data::Dumper; my @foo = ("abc", "bc"); print Dumper(sort bar1 @foo); print Dumper(sort bar2 @foo); sub bar1 { return $a gt $b; } sub bar2 { return length($a) gt length($b); }
