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

Short answer is no, long answer is maybe. No, there is no way to "order the hash". As it is written, so it shall be done. But seriously, the docs aren't lying to you, Perl stores it hashes the way it wants. No guarantee of ordering when you retrieve them.

Now I say maybe because you may feel free to write your own sorting algorithm to sort then on the fly when you want to print them out. Some clever use of the Time::localtime module to convert the month name into a number. However, since you are dealing with 12 pieces of data, that seems like overkill. Honestly, an array with the Names of the months as elements would work perfectly for your needs.

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.
