Linux In The Shell aims to explore the use of many commands a user can run in the Bash Shell. Tutorials include a write up with examples, an audio component about the write up, and a video component to demonstrate the usage of the command.
The website is http://www.linuxintheshell.org/



In todays episode

The sort command does just that, it sorts input.  Input can be a list of files, standard in, or files with standard in. The first example presents this simple file, shopping.txt,  containing a list of items:
chicken
fish
sour cream
bread crumbs
milk
eggs
bread
sinkers
fishing hooks
Issuing the sort command on this file:
sort shopping.txt
Would present the following output:
bread
bread crumbs
chicken
eggs
fish
fishing hooks
milk
sinkers
sour cream
