Sorting hash "values"
Message ID:

%hash = (
         "h" => 100,
         "a" => 200,
         "z" => 50,
         "b" => 600

For the above %hash, I want to sort them by "values"(rather than keys) and
print-out the sorted key-value pair. Can it be done ?? 
The output needs to look like the below:
b  600
a  200
h  100
z  50

  Your esteemed ideas/suggestions please.......
