Hello all,

I am trying to sort some files. When I collect my data, I name the files
mm/dd/yy-hh/mm. (e.g. 7-24-00-9:40). I am using the standard sort
function to try to achieve my results:

@sorted = sort {$a <=> $b} @unsorted;

However, it is not working as expected? After 10am, the files are sorted
out of order. Does anyone know the right way to sort these files?
