( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Ok, I've reduced it to this :-)
sub sort_n { return map { $_->[0] } sort { my $l = @{$a->[1]} < @{$b->[1]} ? @{$a->[1]} : @{$b->[1]}; for (my $n=0; $n<$l; $n++) { my $A = $a->[1][$n]; my $B = $b->[1][$n]; my $tmp; if ($A =~ /\d/) { if ($B =~ /\d/) { $tmp = $A <=> $B; } else { $tmp = -1; } } else { if ($B =~ /\d/) { $tmp = 1; } else { $tmp = $A cmp $B; } } return $tmp if $tmp; } return @{$a->[1]} <=> @{$b->[1]}; } map { [ $_ , [ split( /(\d+)/, $_ ) ] ] } @_; }

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
