in thread sorting a list according to numeric values using the function splice()

Actually i am a newbie in perl so practicing some of the exercises from a book. That is why i am a bit confuse because i could do sorting easily with sort(), they ask to do with the splice(), Is it possible to do with it?

    So the book is asking you to implement various sorting algorithms in perl, and to not use the built-in sort function. That makes a little more sense, if nothing else than to show why most of the time you will want to use the built-in version of sort.
