( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??


I removed the superfluous, identical Step and acc key/value pairs throughout. I moved the wanted element to the centre of the @$data array. You'll need Perl v5.14 to use the s///r. There's similarities to other solutions using a Schwartzian Transform.

#!/usr/bin/env perl use 5.014; use warnings; my $data = [ { Color => 'black', Date => '01-05-2019' }, { Color => 'blue', Date => '10-11-2020' }, { Color => 'green', Date => '08-06-2022' }, { Color => 'white', Date => '01-03-2022' }, { Color => 'red', Date => '03-21-2021' }, ]; my @sorted = map $_->[1], sort { $b->[0] <=> $a->[0] } map [$_->{Date} =~ s/(..)-(..)-(....)/$3$1$2/r, $_], @$data; use Data::Dump; dd $sorted[0];


{ Color => "green", Date => "08-06-2022" }

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
