I have the following code:

@strSortedList = sort (@strList);
for($k = 0, $k <= $#strSortedList; $k==)
    {
      print "$strSortedList[$k]\n";
     }

The list is sorted, however, The Uppercase are sorted first, then the lower case, like so:
Afirstfile
Athirdfile
absecondfile
Blah
Bmblahtoo
betc

I would like to sort it, ignoring the case... how can I do this?

Thanks gurus!

for($k = 0, $k <= $#strSortedList; $k++)
    {
      print "$strSortedList[$k]\n";
     }
can also be written
 print "$_\n" for @strSortedList;
