Hash values are often reordered when more buckets are allocated and so forth, right?

I would say the thing that makes arrays sorted is that you can say @arrayname to get the values, and they'll be in a consistent order. If you say values %hash to get the values of a hash, they will be in no particular order.

Arrays have push and pop and shift and unshift that take advantage of the order of the array. for iterates through arrays in known order; each iterates through hashes. I think not merely our usage, but the language's design, says that arrays are ordered and hashes are unordered.

Caution: Contents may have been coded under pressure.

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.
