I personally believe that you don't want to "pass in other arguments to the sorting sub" because the sub is meant to be used sort and sort() itself won't pass anything in. Chances are you want to use closures instead:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use 5.010; my @trans = ( sub { shift }, sub { ~ shift } ); my @unsorted = qw/foo bar baz/; for my $tr (@trans) { my @sorted = sort { $tr->($a) cmp $tr->($b) } @unsorted; say "@sorted"; } __END__
If you can't understand the incipit, then please check the IPB Campaign.

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.
