( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'm trying to sort an array, using "paid" listings first, and then "distance"... Here is what I've got to sort them by the distance:

my @loop_sorted = sort { $a->{Distance} <=> $b->{Distance} } @test;

An example of the @loop value would be:
my @test; push @test, { distance => "0.12", name => "Test1", isPaidLink => 0 }; push @test, { distance => "1.2", name => "Test1", isPaidLink => 1 }; push @test, { distance => "4", name => "Test1", isPaidLink => 1 }; push @test, { distance => "9.2", name => "Test1", isPaidLink => 0 }; push @test, { distance => "14", name => "Test1", isPaidLink => 1 }; my @loop_sorted = sort { $a->{Distance} <=> $b->{Distance} } @test;
Basically I need to sort them using : isPaidLink (1 first, then 0 after) ... and then numberically via the "distance" field)

I'm guessing this is possible, but I've never done it before so any pointers would be much appreciated :)

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.
