 Need Help??

OK, I think I understand now; I hadn’t realised that separate hashes within the one array could legitimately contain the same keys with different values.

I still think a generic procedure will work, it just needs a comprehensive sorting algorithm:

```#! perl
use strict;
use warnings;
use Test::More tests => 2;
use Test::Deep;

my @x =
(
{ key_3 => 'A', key_2 => 'CC', key_4 => 'E', key_5 => 0 },
{ key_3 => 'A', key_2 => 'DD', key_4 => 'F' },
);

my @y =
(
{ key_3 => 'A', key_2 => 'DD', key_4 => 'F' },
{ key_5 =>  0,  key_3 => 'A',  key_2 => 'CC', key_4 => 'E' },
);

cmp_deeply(        \@x,      bag(@y), 'Deep' );
print '-' x 20, "\n";
is_deeply( my_sort(@x), my_sort(@y), 'More' );

sub my_sort
{
my \$f = sub
{
my @keys_a = sort keys %\$a;
my @keys_b = sort keys %\$b;

return -1 if @keys_a < @keys_b;
return  1 if @keys_a > @keys_b;

my \$result   = 0;
\$result ||= \$keys_a[\$_]  cmp      \$keys_b[\$_] ||
\$a->{\$keys_a[\$_]} cmp \$b->{\$keys_b[\$_]} for 0 .. \$#k
+eys_a;

return \$result;
};

return [ sort \$f @_ ];
}

(For the basic idea, see perlfaq4#How-do-I-sort-an-array-by-anything.) Output:

```14:38 >perl 1314a_SoPW.pl
1..2
ok 1 - Deep
--------------------
ok 2 - More

Disclaimer: I’ve tested this only minimally; there may be corner cases I haven’t found. But I think this should allow you to return to using Test::More::is_deeply to get the benefit of its superior failure messages.

Hope that helps,
