I liked your approach to this, just one question, the code works with the dates in MM-DD-YYYY and YYYY-MM-DD, is this on this part of the code "2,0,1", that's the part I am confused with it, thanks!
#!/usr/bin/env perl #use 5.032; use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my @dates = qw( 02-03-2003 03-01-2022 01-15-2022 01-15-2023 01-15-2001 + 11-15-2023); #my @dates = qw( 2003-02-03 2015-03-01 2032-01-15 2023-01-15 2001-01-1 +5 2028-11-15); print "\n\n ".Dumper \@dates; my @sorted = sort { my $new_a = join( q{-}, (split(/-/,$a))[2,0,1] ); my $new_b = join( q{-}, (split(/-/,$b))[2,0,1] ); $new_b cmp $new_a } @dates; print "\n\n $sorted[0]\n\n";

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.
