LINUX - HOW TO SORT DATA IN A FILE AND STORE IT INTO ANOTHER FILE
The command is as given below:-
Command :- sort <sorttest.txt>sorted1.txt
In the below example, I created a file sorttest.txt and entered data in it.
Now I will enter data into the file sorttest.txt and save the file by pressing ESC key and :wq
We can see the file contents by typing the command cat sorttest.txt
Now we will use the sort command to sort the data and redirect the output to a different file sorted1.txt
We usd the standard input < to feed the data into sort and redirected it by using > to a file named sorted1.txt.
