in thread Sort undef

This being a simple case, I thought the typical way to do it would be in the form:

sort { (defined($a) <=> defined($b)) || ($a cmp $b) }

    Nice! I was worried that <=> can't handle "" without warnings, but that's not the case here. :)

    (empty string is the false value returned from defined(undef) )

    EDIT

    Forget it, I'm getting old ... false is a dual var which resolves to 0 in numeric context.
