Sort::Fields is a Perl module that can sort lines containing delimited fields. SYNOPSIS use Sort::Fields; @sorted = fieldsort [3, 2n], @lines; @sorted = fieldsort +, [-1, -3, 0], @lines; $sort_3_2n = make_fieldsort [3, 2n], @lines; @sorted = $sort_3_2n->(@lines); Sort::Fields provides a general purpose technique for efficiently sorting lists of lines that contain data separated into fields. Sort::Fields automatically imports two subroutines, fieldsort and make_fieldsort, and two variants, stable_fieldsort and make_stable_fieldsort. make_fieldsort generates a sorting subroutine and returns a reference to it. fieldsort is a wrapper for the make_fieldsort subroutine. The first argument to make_fieldsort is a delimiter string, which is used as a regular expression argument for a split operator. The delimiter string is optional. If it is not supplied, make_fieldsort splits each line using /s+/. The second argument is an array reference containing one or more field specifiers. The specifiers indicate what fields in the strings will be used to sort the data. The specifier "1" indicates the first field, "2" indicates the second, and so on. A negative specifier like "-2" means to sort on the second field in reverse (descending) order. To indicate a numeric rather than alphabetic comparison, append "n" to the specifier. A specifier of "0" means the entire string ("-0" means the entire string, in reverse order). The order in which the specifiers appear is the order in which they will be used to sort the data. The primary key is first, the secondary key is second, and so on. fieldsort [1, 2], @data is roughly equivalent to make_fieldsort([1, 2])->(@data). Avoid calling fieldsort repeatedly with the same sort specifiers. If you need to use a particular sort more than once, it is more efficient to call make_fieldsort once and reuse the subroutine it returns. stable_fieldsort and make_stable_fieldsort are like their "unstable" counterparts, except that the items that compare the same are maintained in their original order.
