I think that you're mistaken—say (as opposed to print) provides it for me.

Oops, right

but then I would have had to point out that sort { $a <=> $b } 1..10 could be replaced by just 1..10,

That wouldn't demo how to sort 10 after 9 rather than before 2.

That wasn't my goal, largely because I'm not sure what you mean.

The OP suspected that hashes keys are always strings and that stringification of the keys was the cause of his problem.

Hash keys are always strings (except for magical hashes), but that's not the cause of his problem. Perl treats the number zero and the string zero identically (except for its bitwise operators).

(I'm sure you know that. It's for the OP's benefit.)

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.
