Programming :: SORT Command Versus Unix SORT

May 4, 2010

We switched from unix to linux and we have an old report that extracted data from a database, output to an ascii file and then sorted the results in the file based on different arguments. The report now blows up when it runs,and I can only guess it is because the options for sort on linux differ slightly from unix.For example, here is one of the commands issued from within the report app that ran on the old unix box:

if sort-sequence = "descending" then
'sort -t~" -f +3.0f -4.0 +5.0r -6.0 -f '
'sort -t~" +3.0f -4.0 +1.0f -2.0 -f'

I will eventually rewrite the report to store the data in a local table, but I can simply adjust the options to suit the requirments of linux. Basically, I need to know if this can be a quick fix for the short term.

Programming :: Sort Command Output Differs When Encounters?

Mar 18, 2010

Here is what I am doing I have a file, a.txt for example, with following contents:

coreutils install
cpio install
cpp install
cpp-4.3 install
dbus install


So it seems like the sorting algo. for dpkg --get-selections is different than sorting algo. of 'sort' command when it encounters "-" (hyphen). How can I sort the original file (a.txt) in such a way that it produces the output file ,b.txt, exactly the same.

Fedora :: Bash Hangs When Command Not Found / Sort It?

Dec 9, 2009

I've been using linux for a long time, and I just ran into a problem that has me stumped. Any time I mistype a command, it says "Command not found."... yea, I know that's normal. But it doesn't return me to my # prompt. I have to press Ctrl+C to get back. code...

I know I do have one issue with this computer, I have 2 blown caps on my motherboard. This was a dual boot system, but after a virus with winblows, I decided to switch it to strictly linux. (roommates... *grumble*) I think I was running fc10 before I wiped the hd & installed fc12. Fc12 does seem to be running slower, and I still haven't got my sound card working properly... but that issue is for another topic...

Programming :: Way To Add Some Sort Of I-/usr/include Commands

Feb 27, 2011

I'm learning GTK , and would like to use Codeblocks, and/or KDEvelop, and compile my c files using that, but always get an error about gtk/gtk.h not found, but can't figure out how to add the commands... I normally type gcc -o Program1 main.c `pkg-config --libs --cflags gtk+-2.0` That's a lot to type every time to compile.. Isn't there an easier way, in KDevelop, Monodevelop, and/or Codeblocks to make this step quicker, by adding some sort of I-/usr/include commands, or something?? thanks in advance, =). I looked online for some results, but didn't come across anything handy..

Programming :: PHP - Sort Multi Dimensional Array

Apr 30, 2010

I have a multi-dimensional array like so:

Array (
[0] => Array (
[0] => Eleven
[1] => NumberEleven
[2] => 11 )
[1] => Array (
[0] => Twelve
[1] => NumberTwelve
[2] => 12 )
[2] => Array (
[0] => AnotherEleven
[1] => Eleven,Again
[2] => 11 )

I need to sort it by array[ $key ][ 2 ] so that it is sorted like so:
Array (
[0] => Array (
[0] => Eleven
[1] => NumberEleven
[2] => 11 )
[1] => Array (
[0] => AnotherEleven
[1] => Eleven,Again
[2] => 11 )
[2] => Array (
[0] => Twelve
[1] => NumberTwelve
[2] => 12 )

I've looked at the php array docs the closet thing I found was array_multisort which won't work for my above requirements, does anyone have any insight to how to sort this way?

I have fiddled with array_multisort but I can't seem to get my head around it or the many sort routines in PHP.

Programming :: Pipe The Current Directory Listing Into Sort?

Oct 20, 2010

how to pipe the current directory listing into sort so that the output is the date in descending order (primary sort key). If there are multiple entries with the same date, I'd like the times sorted in ascending order. It seems simple but for some reason this isn't working:

ls -l | sort -k 6r -k 7

For some reason it doesn't seem to ever get to the second sort key when using column 6 (last modified date).

Programming :: Perl Script Output Can't Be Redirected To A File / Sort It?

The perl script I wrote works fine if I print the result to screen 1 1000 0 5

But whenever I want to output to a file with 1 1000 0 5 > x0_out

it never really prints out to the file.

It worked earlier, but I was playing with my PATH lately, I don't know if it's related to that

Programming :: [Perl] Fail To Sort A File With 300,000 Lines By Multiple Columns?

Nov 10, 2009

Each line of the file I am sorting is in the following format:

<url> <month> <day>

For example:


I wrote the following to sort:


$in = shift;


The script worked fine for my small testing files, but failed in my input file. The input file is 18MB and containing more than 300,000 lines. The output will contains some lines like that:

url_one 10 1
url_two 10 1
url_three 10 3
url_four 10 1

Is that because my file is too big for perl to handle ?

Programming :: Bash Script: Sort Files Into Directory Based On Data In The File Name?

Sep 28, 2010

I have very little linux experience. And need some help with a bash script. I need to a script I can set cron to run to sort files out of a holding folder into final folders. It doesn't necessarily have to be bash, but I think it would be sufficient for this. File names are formatted as such when created: Dest-Date-Time-CID-Destination# I want the files to be moved from a all in one holding folder to a folder structure like this.


I would need an if/else if/else statement to say if Dest = A set VarX = B If for example the file name was


I would like the above file to end up moved from




So the script will need to make directories based on information in the file name which is delimited by single dashes. Then move files from the holding folder to the newly created "sorted" folders.

Programming :: Sort Oldest 5 Files In A Directory Tree Recursively Based On Timestamp?

Jun 3, 2010

I have a directory listing with many subdirectories having many files. I want to recursively search for the oldest 5 files starting from the base directory and not 5 from each subdirectory. I am writing a shell script which sorts them using ls -lRtur|egrep "txt|jpg" > /tmp/file1 Now from this /tmp/file1 file I want to sort the files same as what the ls -ltr command does that is oldest file time to newest file time first. How do I sort based on Linux time stamp? The files itself also have Linux timestamps embedded in them So I can sort based after extracting them as well if it is easier.
My /tmp/file1 has entries like below.

-rw-rw-r--. 1 usr1 usr1 705 2010-01-22 17:25 sample20100603173659.jpg

I want to get the 5 oldest files and then delete them.
