You might want to clarify your requirements a little by providing a few example input filenames and the expected output (contents of your @TXT array).

I have made a few changes to your script:

  • Added use warnings;
  • Stored the regex in a variable, $re, to avoid duplication.
  • Removed the unnecessary capturing parentheses from the regex; since you are only using $1, you only need 1 set.
  • Check $first_number instead of $1. Same for $2.

Here is the code:

use strict; use warnings; use File::Copy; sub files_sort { my $first_number; my $second_number; my $re = qr/(\d+)_\d+_duration_\w+_comptage_\d+.txt$/; if ($a =~ $re) { $first_number = $1; } if ($b =~ $re) { $second_number = $1; } if ($first_number < $second_number) { -1 } elsif ($first_number > $second_number) { 1 } else { 0 } } my @TXT = glob("*.txt"); @TXT = sort files_sort @TXT; print "$_\n" for @TXT;

Here is the output:

% ls -1 *.txt A3_output_ZGZ22_03_20061022_duration_200mn_comptage_60.txt M3_output_ZGZ22_02_20061022_duration_200mn_comptage_60.txt M3_output_ZGZ22_12_20051022_duration_200mn_comptage_60.txt M3_output_ZGZ22_12_20061022_duration_200mn_comptage_60.txt % M3_output_ZGZ22_02_20061022_duration_200mn_comptage_60.txt A3_output_ZGZ22_03_20061022_duration_200mn_comptage_60.txt M3_output_ZGZ22_12_20051022_duration_200mn_comptage_60.txt M3_output_ZGZ22_12_20061022_duration_200mn_comptage_60.txt

Is this what you expect?

Caveat: you must make sure that all the *.txt files in your directory match your regex.

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.
