@rocks has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hey guy,

I know from reading Learning Perl 3rd Edition that changing Perl's default (ASCIIbetical) to your own custom method is possible. However, I don't know how to however because I promised myself that I would read the book in order no matter what and I would probably get confused if I skipped to chapter 15. Can anyone give me a clear and simple explanation of how to change the default? I really would like to know how to change it to Alphanumerical. ASCIIbetical is so odd.
