=head1 NAME

Sort::Sub::naturally - Sort naturally (by number or string parts)

=head1 VERSION

This document describes version 0.120 of Sort::Sub::naturally (from Perl distribution Sort-Sub), released on 2020-05-25.

=for Pod::Coverage ^(gen_sorter|meta)$


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

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

Generate sorter (accessed as subroutine):

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

Generate directly without Sort::Sub:

 use Sort::Sub::naturally;
 my $sorter = Sort::Sub::naturally::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 L<sortsub> (from L<App::sortsub>):

 % some-cmd | sortsub naturally
 % some-cmd | sortsub naturally --ignore-case -r


This module can generate sort subroutine. It is meant to be used via L<Sort::Sub>, although you can also use it directly via C<gen_sorter()>.

=head1 NOTES

Uses L<Sort::Naturally>'s C<ncmp> as the backend. Always sorts
