Data::Sorting provides functions to sort the contents of arrays based
on a collection of extraction and comparison rules. Extraction rules
are  used to identify the attributes of array elements on which the
ordering  is based; comparison rules specify how those values should be
Index strings may be used to retrieve values from array elements, or
function references may be passed in to call on each element.
Comparison rules are provided for numeric, bytewise, and
case-insensitive orders, as well as a 'natural' comparison that places
numbers first, in numeric order, followed by the remaining items in
case-insensitive textual order.
