SORT (I) 9/2/72 SORT (I) NAME sort -- sort a file SYNOPSIS sort [ - ] [ input [ output ] ] DESCRIPTION sort will sort the input file and write the sort- ed file on the output file. If the output file is not given, the input file is rewritten. If the input file is missing, sort uses the standard input as input and the standard output for out- put. Thus sort may be used as a filter. The sort is line-by-line in increasing ASCII col- lating sequence, except that upper-case letters are considered the same as the lower-case let- ters. The optional argument - will cause a reverse sort. sort is implemented in such a way that sort /dev/mt0 works correctly provided the tape is not too big. FILES /tmp/stm? SEE ALSO -- DIAGNOSTICS -- BUGS The largest file that can be sorted is about 128K bytes.
