perl array sorting

Hi All,

I have an array in perl as @match = (201001,201002,201001,201002);
I am trying to sort this array as
Code:
@match = sort(@match);
print "@match";

I dont see the output sorted any answers

I also tried another way, but still the results are not sorted

Code:
 foreach my $match (sort { $a <=> $b } @match) {
 print "$match\n"; }

any help please

Thanks
Deepak

perl sorting

Assuming: @match = (201001,201002,201001,201002);

try this, which is assuming numerical sort:

Code:
@sorted = sort { $a <=> $b } @match ;

if char based:

Code:
@sorted = sort { lc($a) cmp lc($b) } @match;

Thank you for your answers,

I am not getting results for an array in the run time

for above example : i wrote a small program it works

Code:
$ vi test.pl
#!/usr/bin/perl
@match = ("201001","201002","201001","201002");
@sorted = sort { $a <=> $b } @match ;
print "@sorted";

==> but for my runtime array program i am not getting the right results

Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl
@input=<>;
foreach (@input)
{
        if(/2010/)
        {
                @G=split /_/;
                @match = grep (/p20/i, @G);
                foreach (@match){
                s/p//;
                }
                #@match = reverse sort(@match);
                @sorted = sort { $a <=> $b } @match ;
                #@sorted = sort { lc($a) cmp lc($b) } @match;
                print "@sorted";
                #@sorted_numbers = reverse sort {$a <=> $b} @match;
                #foreach my $match (sort { $a <=> $b } @match) {
                #print "$match"; }
        }
}

===> Input to the file is
Code:
test_main_p201001
test_main_p201002
test_sub_p201001
test_sub_p201002

thank you for reading... I found my mistake

===>Here is the correct one...
Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl
@input=<>;
@test=('');
foreach (@input)
{
        if(/2010/)
        {
                @G=split /_/;
                @match = grep (/p20/i, @G);
                foreach (@match){
                s/p//;
                }
                push(@test,@match);
        }
}
 @sorted = sort { $a <=> $b } @test ;
 print "@sorted";
