NAME

Sort::Sub::by_date_in_text - Sort by date found in text or (if no date is found) ascibetically

VERSION

This document describes version 0.009 of Sort::Sub::by_date_in_text (from Perl distribution Sort-Sub-by_date_in_text), released on 2019-12-15.

SYNOPSIS

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

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

Generate sorter (accessed as subroutine):

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

Generate directly without Sort::Sub:

 use Sort::Sub::by_date_in_text;
 my $sorter = Sort::Sub::by_date_in_text::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 by_date_in_text
 % some-cmd | sortsub by_date_in_text --ignore-case -r

DESCRIPTION
