NAME

Sort::Sub::changes_group_ala_perlancar - Sort changes group heading PERLANCAR-style

VERSION

This document describes version 0.081 of Sort::Sub::changes_group_ala_perlancar (from Perl distribution PERLANCAR-Sort-Sub), released on 2020-02-15.

SYNOPSIS

Generate sorter (accessed as variable) via Sort::Sub import:

 use Sort::Sub '$changes_group_ala_perlancar'; # use '$changes_group_ala_perlancar<i>' for case-insensitive sorting, '$changes_group_ala_perlancar<r>' for reverse sorting
 my @sorted = sort $changes_group_ala_perlancar ('item', ...);

Generate sorter (accessed as subroutine):

 use Sort::Sub 'changes_group_ala_perlancar<ir>';
 my @sorted = sort {changes_group_ala_perlancar} ('item', ...);

Generate directly without Sort::Sub:

 use Sort::Sub::changes_group_ala_perlancar;
 my $sorter = Sort::Sub::changes_group_ala_perlancar::gen_sorter(
     ci => 1,      # default 0, set 1 to sort case-insensitively
     reverse => 1, # default 0, set 1 to sort in reverse order
 );
 my @sorted = sort $sorter ('item', ...);

Use in shell/CLI with sortsub (from App::sortsub):

 % some-cmd | sortsub changes_group_ala_perlancar
 % some-cmd | sortsub changes_group_ala_perlancar --ignore-case -r

DESCRIPTION

A Changes file can group its changes entries into groups with headings, e.g.:

 [ENHANCEMENTS]

 - blah blah

 - blah

 [BUG FIXES]

 - blah blah blah

I sort these group headings according to this principle: prioritize the items that:

  • are more important;

  • affect users the most;

  • users would want to know first.

Thus breaking or backward-incompatible changes are put first because they affect existing users and in a significant way. Removed features are next, they are also basically backward-incompatible changes.

Then come new features. After that, enhancements. Bug fixes currently come last (actually bug fixes vary in importance but we currently do not categorize them further into subgroups).
