( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
thanks everybody. i get it now and fixed it. I did know I was doing it all wrong of course, that's why i posted. For some reason I couldn't see where the scalars and arrays were in this. everything was working till i had to add the sort - i wasn't able to back out and see where changes had to be made. i appreciate the help. hopefully people learn from my dumb posts.
#SEARCH THROUGH THE CONTENT DIRECTORY AND FIND THE FILES THAT MATCH chdir("$contentdir");#change to the content directory my $stuff = ".";#make it $_ opendir THISDIR, "$stuff";#open the content directory my @submenu = readdir THISDIR;#put the names of the files in an array closedir THISDIR; for (1..2) {shift @submenu;} my @aaa; for (@submenu) { push(@aaa,[split /\_/,$_,3]); } my @final = sort {$a->[2] <=> $b->[2] } @aaa; for (@final) { my $cat=$_->[0]; my $title=$_->[1]; my $rankk=$_->[2]; (my $rank, $tossit) = split (/\./, $rankk,2); #foreach submenu item print it if ($cat=~$main) { $counter++; if ($counter > 1) { print "<a href \= \"/cgi-bin/$sub1$sep$sub2$sep$sub3\">"; print "$sub2"; print "</a>"; etc., etc. i know this isn't pretty, but it is what it is.
