How to do string sort by number in specified lines?

==========================================
There is a string(“string_sample”, every line end with “\n”),

1/24 17:26
name2 shandong NoXDisplay J3_ffffffffa8c0a600_21848_2 (v2012.12)
(server2/port2 13335), start Fri 1/24 9:29

name6 bl460cc NoXDisplay (v2012.12) (server6/port6 16114), start Thu
1/23 15:31

==========================================
I want the lines ascending sort by date and time(example:1/22 10:30) as
below.

1/22 10:30
name6 bl460cc NoXDisplay (v2012.12) (server6/port6 16114), start Thu

name2 shandong NoXDisplay J3_ffffffffa8c0a600_21848_2 (v2012.12)

name1 bl460ca NoXDisplay (v2012.12) (server1/port1 18709), start Fri
1/24 17:26

==========================================
I try write code as below, but don’t work, any friend can give help?
Whether “Schwarzian Transform” better for this?

array_tmp = string_sample.split("\n")
puts array_tmp.sort {|x| x.split(/,/)[1].split(//|\s+|:/)[3]}.sort_by
{|x| x.split(/,/)[1].split(//|\s+|:/)[4]}.sort_by {|x|
x.split(/,/)[1].split(//|\s+|:/)[5]}.sort_by {|x|
x.split(/,/)[1].split(//|\s+|:/)[6]}

I can’t really read this blob, so I’m not sure at to it’s point.

You want to “sort by” a subset of the string, numerically, and you
already found “sort_by” (which basically IS the schwartzian transform in
one beautiful method). So why not do just that?

array.lines.sort_by { |s| s.split(",").last.scan(/\d+/).map(&:to_i) 

}

get the lines, sort them by: the last string segment in a comma
separated string, look for digits, and convert them to integers.

I haven’t tested it, and there are probably more elegant ways to do
this, but it should get you moving in the right direction.

Dear Ryan,

Your solution works fine, I understand now, my method is sort one by
one, at last only last sort take effect. Also my method is too
expatiatory and ugly. :slight_smile:

Many thanks for your guide.

I opt for using proper types:

irb(main):035:0> require ‘time’
=> true
irb(main):036:0> puts str.each_line.sort_by {|line|
DateTime.parse(line[/start\s+(.*)/, 1])}

=> nil

May I ask whether there is any forum thread or document I can reference
and study about the usage and grammar of " line[/start\s+(.*)/,
1]) " you used here? How to do if want grab 2 or 3 brackets?

This is one of the (many) uses of String#[]

http://ruby-doc.org/core-2.1.0/String.html#method-i-5B-5D

Notably: str[regexp, capture] → new_str or nil

If a Regexp is supplied, the matching portion of the string is returned.
If a capture follows the regular expression, which may be a capture
group index or name, follows the regular expression that component of
the MatchData is returned instead.

Wow, really good solution, thank you so much.

and study about the usage and grammar of " line[/start\s+(.*)/,
1]) " you used here? How to do if want grab 2 or 3 brackets?

Thanks again.
