Your problem is in the first map (or the last map reading left to right which is not how I think when I'm building a Schwartzian transform). The /.+,/ in
map { [ $_, /.+,/ ] }
is only returning the number of matches (or 1 in this case). As a result it should give you back the original list. If you're trying to sort on computed fields, you need to extract them first and _then_ bundle them up in the anonymous array.

So something like
map     { my @fields = split /,/; [ $_, $field[1] ] } might get you closer to what you're looking for.

Once you've mastered that, you'll next want to look at the Orcish manoeuvre which speeds up your sorts

Sometimes I can think of 6 impossible LDAP attributes before breakfast.

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.
