The function is adding the value of two chunks together and returning the result. How does that even compute? Unless the + operator is doing something totally different here…

Actually, the syntax is correct. It uses a custom sort function. The function call includes the "each" which means it passes the correct parameter to the custom function, which then acts on it and sends the result back to the calling handler for sorting. It's a nice way to customize the built-in sort. You can do some pretty extravagant things with it.
