why do you need a custom function byvalue() ?

Even sorting the keys of a normal hash by value¹ can only be done by somehow tunneling the reference into byvalue() by closure/currying (like choroba showed) or by doing a (schwarzian?) transform of the hash into an array of key/value-tupels.

Both approaches look like overkill if you can do this straightforwardly:

my %h = %{$self->{hash_ref}}; my @keys = sort { $h{$a} <=> $h{$b} } keys %h;

Easy to read, easy to understand.

So why ?

DB<100> $self={ hash_ref=>{item1=>'value1',item2=>'value2'} } => { hash_ref => { item1 => "value1", item2 => "value2" } } DB<101> %h=%{$self->{hash_ref}} => ("item1", "value1", "item2", "value2") DB<103> @keys=sort {$h{$a}<=>$h{$b}} keys %h; => ("item1", "item2")

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