( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm having trouble with this problem sorting the IP address in increasing numeric order. If the first octet is the same, sort by the second octet, if the second octet is the same sort by the third octet, etc. IP addresses have a different number of digits between the periods so you will have to split the data up.

An example is:
127.0.0.1
10.129.30.5
10.129.30.2
255.255.255.255
10.109.30.5
142.222.130.23
10.109.1.1
142.222.87.30

I can sort it by increasing to decreasing number but not by each octet.
The answer should be:
10.109.1.1
10.129.30.2
10.129.30.5
10.109.30.5
127.0.0.1
142.222.87.30
142.222.130.23
255.255.255.255

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
