    SYNOPSIS

           sort [OPTION]... [FILE]...
           sort [OPTION]... --files0-from=F
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Write sorted concatenation of all FILE(s) to standard output.
    
           Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options
           too.  Ordering options:
    
           -b, --ignore-leading-blanks
                  ignore leading blanks
    
           -d, --dictionary-order
                  consider only blanks and alphanumeric characters
    
           -f, --ignore-case
                  fold lower case to upper case characters
    
           -g, --general-numeric-sort
                  compare according to general numerical value
    
           -i, --ignore-nonprinting
                  consider only printable characters
    
           -M, --month-sort
                  compare (unknown) < 'JAN' < ... < 'DEC'
    
           -h, --human-numeric-sort
                  compare human readable numbers (e.g., 2K 1G)
    
           -n, --numeric-sort
                  compare according to string numerical value
    
           -R, --random-sort
                  sort by random hash of keys
    
           --random-source=FILE
                  get random bytes from FILE
    
           -r, --reverse
                  reverse the result of comparisons
    
           --sort=WORD
                  sort according to WORD: general-numeric  -g,  human-numeric  -h,
                  month -M, numeric -n, random -R, version -V
    
           -V, --version-sort
                  natural sort of (version) numbers within text
    
           Other options:
    
                  file F; If F is - then read names from standard input
    
           -k, --key=POS1[,POS2]
                  start a key at POS1 (origin 1), end it at POS2 (default  end  of
                  line)
    
           -m, --merge
                  merge already sorted files; do not sort
    
           -o, --output=FILE
                  write result to FILE instead of standard output
    
           -s, --stable
                  stabilize sort by disabling last-resort comparison
    
           -S, --buffer-size=SIZE
                  use SIZE for main memory buffer
    
           -t, --field-separator=SEP
                  use SEP instead of non-blank to blank transition
    
           -T, --temporary-directory=DIR
                  use  DIR  for temporaries, not $TMPDIR or /tmp; multiple options
                  specify multiple directories
    
           -u, --unique
                  with -c, check for strict ordering; without -c, output only  the
                  first of an equal run
    
           -z, --zero-terminated
                  end lines with 0 byte, not newline
    
           --help display this help and exit
    
           --version
                  output version information and exit
    
           POS  is  F[.C][OPTS],  where  F is the field number and C the character
           position in the field; both are origin 1.  If neither -t nor -b  is  in
           effect,  characters  in  a  field are counted from the beginning of the
           preceding whitespace.  OPTS  is  one  or  more  single-letter  ordering
           options,  which  override  global ordering options for that key.  If no
           key is given, use the entire line as the key.
    
           SIZE may be followed by the following multiplicative suffixes: % 1%  of
           memory, b 1, K 1024 (default), and so on for M, G, T, P, E, Z, Y.
    
           With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
    
           ***  WARNING  ***  The locale specified by the environment affects sort
           order.  Set LC_ALL=C to get the traditional sort order that uses native
           byte values.
           There is NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by law.

           The  full documentation for sort is maintained as a Texinfo manual.  If
           the info and sort programs are properly installed  at  your  site,  the
           command
    
                  info coreutils 'sort invocation'
    
           should give you access to the complete manual.
