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.  The sort is line-

                by-line in increasing ASCII collating sequence.

                Space required is 6*number-of-lines in bytes.

FILES           /tmp/stm?

SEE ALSO        --


BUGS            Sort does not put a maximum on the size of file

                that it sorts.  Thus a bus error will occur if

                too large an input file is supplied.

                The input is copied to a temporary file.  Thus

                the maximum file that can be sorted is the maxi-

                mum non-special file (currently 64K bytes.)
