( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am not familiar with the module but in the docs it says:
Spaces, symbols and non-printable characters are only considered for splitting the string into its parts but not for sorting. For instance foo-bar-42 is broken in three substrings foo, bar and 42 and after that the dashes are ignored.
For the examples you give the sort order would then be:
 
P007BYUM
P007YUM 

 
P007Yum 
P007bYum

 
P007byum
P007yum 

 
Which to my mind is correct. You might be able to use some variation of the Schwartzian Transform to achieve your desired output.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
