Re: [BillKSmith] Data Sorting Example

Please try the code below and compare the result with yours

That worked, thank you.

Well, if you want to sort all the positive integers from 1 to 50,000, just don't sort them and don't even look at your database. Just print them in their natural order:

Thanks, but the exercise is to emulate a database so I'm pulling out a section of the numbers from 1 to 50,000 and then giving the user the option to do things like display only prime numbers, or exclude numbers starting with 3 or ending with 8, etc.

Do not assume that the user has entered the right data, validate it. I recommend the use of a module for prompting.

Thanks, but I'm just starting with Perl so I'll wait to add modules until I understand enough of the basics.
