Sorting Whatever* in $LANG

Condensed from six 1/2-hour Perl classes I taught to Atlanta PerlMongers, then enhanced for Raku, this talk covers simple sorting for simple and complex needs, humorous history, performance landmines, and best practices.

--99% of `sort()` is provided by your language, needing only a tiny bit of your own code to customize it. Come learn to write the missing bit, add this tool to your toolbox, and then I'll show you how deep the 1% rabbit hole goes. Wrong turns all mapped out; clean and fast code on tap.
