my %nums = ( four => 4, one => 1, three => 3, two => 2, ); for %nums.pairs.sort: { $^a.value <=> $^b.value } -> $pair { say $pair; }

(not necessarily shorter, but mentions %nums only once in the sort line).

There was also a proposal to make the sort method accept a block of arity one that automatically performs a ST, but it doesn't seem to be in the spec, and thusly isn't implemented by Rakudo right now.

Update: clinton asked in the CB what the colon after the sort was about, so here's the explanation for everybody: The are two syntax forms for method calls in Perl 6, $object.method($arg1, $arg2, ...) and $object.method: $arg1, $args, .... My example uses the latter to avoid more parenthesis.

  • 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.
