9.5. Multi-Level Sort with the Schwartzian Transform

If we need to sort on more than one criterion, the Schwartzian Transform is still up to the task.

my @output_data =
  map $_->[0],
  sort { SORT COMPARISON USING $a->[1] AND $b->[1] or
          ANOTHER USING $a->[2] AND $b->[2] or
      YET ANOTHER USING $a->[3] AND $b->[3] }
  map [ $_, SOME FUNCTION OF $_, ANOTHER, YET ANOTHER ],
  @input_data;

This code skeleton has a three-level sort comparison, using three computed values saved in the anonymous array (alongside the original data item to be sorted, which always comes first).
