Hi Mentalbox,

All your answers can be found in "The Camel Book" (Programming Perl)!!

It may take some time indexing and reading through it, but the rewards are worth it.
IMHO, there is no better language for extracting and manipulating data. ;)

Perl makes easy things easy and difficult things possible

Hint: check out the man pages for perl (it's a book in itself)

Hi hsincredible,
(I just saw this post)

I assume you have a reason for the way you collect data from STDIN...
number of inputs then inputs :confused:

Perl is an awesome language for extracting and manipulating data.
A sort function already exists and produces a sorted output.


my $t=<STDIN>;
my @n;
my @n_sorted;
@n_sorted = sort @n;
        print $_."\n";

honestly, I've never needed more than Algebra in my applications.
In my experience, corporations need database information in many different formats.

If you can embed SQL in a web based language..., you are 1/2 way there ;)
