You're trying too hard. You're now saying that there must be exactly one kind of ordering that constitutes ordering, and nothing else can be considered ordered. Or that every ordering must be implemented for a thing to be considered ordered. I'm not sure which you're contending; they're both pretty stupid notions, which is why it surprises me to see you pushing it as a serious argument.

Order has to be imposed externally on the data in the case of arrays too.
No, order is intrinsic to arrays. Not every possible order, but the one that is intrinsic. Any other ordering would have to be imposed. Arrays have one intrinsic ordering. Hashes have zero intrinsic orderings.

Caution: Contents may have been coded under pressure.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
