sortsub - Sort lines of text (or records) using Sort::Sub routines
This document describes version 0.047 of sortsub (from Perl distribution App-subsort), released on 2021-03-14.
% subsort [OPTIONS] <ROUTINE> [FILE]...
% subsort naturally data.txt
% subsort naturally -r data.txt
% subsort 'naturally<r>' data.txt
% some-cmd | subsort by_several -A first='by_length<r>' -A second=numerically data.txt
Some other examples:
# like Unix's tac
% subsort record-by-reverse-order data.txt
To list all available routines:
% subsort -l
This program is like the Unix command sort, but it uses routines from Sort::Sub.
--help, -h Show this help message and exit.
--version, -v Show version and exit.
--list, -l List available Sort::Sub routines.
--ignore-case, -f Do a case-insensitive sort.
--reverse, -r Do a reverse sort.
--arg=s, -A Argument to pass to sorter. In the form of name=val. Can
be specified multiple times.
--key=s, -k Perl code to generate sort key to sort against.
-0[octal or hexa] Specify record separator character (default is newline).
--para Split input per paragraph (by blank lines).
This script has shell tab completion capability with support for several shells.
To activate bash completion for this script, put:
complete -C sortsub sortsub
in your bash startup (e.g. ~/.bashrc). Your next shell session will then recognize tab completion for the command. Or, you can also directly execute the line above in your shell to activate immediately.
It is recommended, however, that you install modules using cpanm-shcompgen which can activate shell completion for scripts immediately.
To activate tcsh completion for this script, put:
complete sortsub 'p/*/`sortsub`/'
in your tcsh startup (e.g. ~/.tcshrc). Your next shell session will then recognize tab completion for the command. Or, you can also directly execute the line above in your shell to activate immediately.
It is also recommended to install shcompgen (see above).
For fish and zsh, install shcompgen as described above.
