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

If you say values %hash to get the values of a hash, they will be in no particular order.

So if the following change was built into Perl, hashes would be considered sorted?

use subs qw( values ); sub values(\%) { my $h = shift; return keys(%$h) if !wantarray(); my @keys = sort keys(%$h); return @{$h}{@keys}; }
my %h = map { $_ => $_ } 'a'..'z'; print(values(%h), "\n"); # abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

I think there's more to it than just this change in the builtin accessors.

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.
