Hello List, Sorry if this has been discussed before, I could not find any resolved/rejected bugs. according to the documentation "\W substrings (neither words-characters nor digits) are ignored. " But there is a difference in sorting order when the list contains newlines, here is a minimal example: # Using the diamond operator to sort a list (for example, a file with multiple lines) [ncastill@psort]$ echo -e "A.1\nA.1.1\nA.2\nA.10" | perl -MSort::Naturally -E 'print nsort <>' A.1.1 A.1 A.2 A.10 # removing the newlines \n before sorting, then putting them back in the output does sort it according to the documentation [ncastill@psort]$ echo -e "A.1\nA.1.1\nA.2\nA.10" | perl -MSort::Naturally -E 'chomp(@_=<>); say join "\n", nsort @_' A.1 A.1.1 A.2 A.10 # newline \n does match \W $ perl -E 'say "\n"=~/^\W+$/' 1 # also checked against latest version, and it is the same file as on my system: # Not sure what my complaint is, as there is a workaround. Maybe a note in the documentation to chomp before nsort-ing. Hopefuly a fix. # My environment: This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 3 (v5.16.3) built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi [ncastill@psort]$ head -4 /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Sort/ require 5; package Sort::Naturally; # Time-stamp: "2004-12-29 18:30:03 AST" $VERSION = '1.03'; [ncastill@psort]$ uname -a Linux 3.10.0-862.11.6.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Aug 10 16:55:11 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Cordiali saluti, salutări, S pozdravom, Met vriendelijke groeten, Cordialement, With kind regards, Nilton Castillo IT Specialist Unix GTS - UWV Unix Team Office: HDK4-D IBM Nederland B.V.
