Hello QuillMeantTen,

There may be a story behind your 're-invention' of sort, but the core 'sort' routine does quite well with these requirements:

> time perl -e '@ar[$_]=int(rand(1000)) for(0..25); print "List: @ar +\n"; @str=sort(@ar);print "Str Cmp: @str\n"; @numr=sort{$a<=>$b} @ar;print "Num Cmp: @numr\n";'
Result:
List: 529 175 516 995 715 296 57 189 999 381 315 612 393 914 716 48 +3 30 58 269 849 180 820 546 20 577 127 Str Cmp: 127 175 180 189 20 269 296 30 315 381 393 483 516 529 546 57 +577 58 612 715 716 820 849 914 995 999 Num Cmp: 20 30 57 58 127 175 180 189 269 296 315 381 393 483 516 529 5 +46 577 612 715 716 820 849 914 995 999 real 0m0.004s user 0m0.004s sys 0m0.000s
Since the standard Perl 'sort' is very powerful and very fast, is there a reason to *improve* it?

Just wondering...Ed

Regards...Ed

Title:
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.
