The proper menu option is as follows.
For all versions prior to 6.8.3:
Menu Edit → Line Operations → Sort Lines in Ascending / Descending Order
For version 6.8.3 and following:
Menu Edit → Line Operations → Sort Lines Lexicographically Ascending / Descending
Select a few lines and your selection will be sorted. If there's no selection, your entire ...
Vim's own :sort command
does what you want.
See :help :sort.
Alternatively, you can also use your system's sort command as a filter:
See :help filter in Vim and $ man sort in your shell.
It depends on the collation order of your locale:
>LANG=en_IE.UTF-8 ls -1 foo*
>LANG=C ls -1 foo*
You can also use the LC_COLLATE variable instead of LANG, and use the POSIX locale instead of the C one.
C collation order is purely alphabetical (ASCII order). Other collation orders (such as ...
As you may have realised, your IP addresses are treated as text and not numbers. They are being sorted as text, which means that addresses beginning with "162" will come before addresses beginning with "20." (because the character "1" comes before the character "2".
You can use the formula provided in this answer: https://stackoverflow.com/a/31615838/...
The Sort-Object cmdlet in PowerShell supports a -Unique switch that does the same thing as uniq:
Get-Content file.txt | Sort-Object -unique
Of course, owing to presence of aliases in PowerShell, you can also write:
type file.txt | sort -unique
Additionally, there is an undocumented /unique switch in sort.exe of Windows 10, so, this should work in Command ...
sort doesn't create a thread unless it needs to, and for small files it's just too much overhead. Now unfortunately sort treats a pipe like a small file. If you want to feed enough data to 24 threads then you'll need to specify to sort to use a large internal buffer (sort does that automatically when presented with large files). This is something we should ...
One other option is to load the file into a Database. E.G MySQL and MySQL Workbench.
Databases are perfect candidates for working with large files
If your input file contains just words seperated by a new line this shouldn't be to hard.
After you've installed the database and MySQL Workbench this is what you'd need to do.
First create the schema (this ...
For the mac users, you can install coreutils.
This formula provides the GNU core utilities implementations, and for the commands that are also provided by macOS, they have been installed with the "g" prefix.
brew install coreutils

You can further simplify your life with an alias

As nixda mentioned in the comments, helper columns will make this possible. You have two options for maintaining the sheet afterward:
Add all new IPs in the split helper columns.
Repeat the Text-to-columns procedure for new additions.
Here's the procedure:
Select your IP column and click Data > Text-to-Columns
Choose the Delimted option and click Next. ...
You can sort on multiple columns by shift-clicking.
A normal click sets the primary order, shown by the up/down indicator arrow. After that, you can press Shift while clicking on a column header to set the secondary, tertiary, etc. orders. The indicator will remain on the primary column and you can click any of those columns again to toggle the direction.
What are my options?
Try Freeware Command Line Sort Utility CMSort.
It uses multiple temporary files and then merges them at the end.
CMsort is reading records of an input file until the adjusted memory is reached. Then the records are sorted and written to a temporary file. This will be repeated until all records are processed. Finally, all temporary ...
I was still getting inconsistent results with the various solutions. This seemed to work best for me:
Open My Documents folder, Select View - Details
Either (A) move Date column to the far left or (B) right click on date column, select "More" and move Date to the very top (Move Up button)
Click on Date to sort by most recent
Select View - Options
Extending user195696's answer:
find . -type f -printf "%T@\t%Tc %6k KiB %p\n" | sort -n | cut -f 2-
For each file, this first outputs the numeric timestamp (for sorting by, followed by tabulation \t), then a human-readable timestamp, then the filesize (unfortunately find's -printf can't do in mebibytes, only kibibytes), then the filename with relative path....
I did some testing and the overall ordering seems to be as follows...
Latin (ordered by Unicode value (U+xxxx))
Greek (ordered by Unicode value (U+xxxx))
Cyrillic (ordered by Unicode value (U+xxxx))
Hebrew (ordered by Unicode value (U+xxxx))
Arabic (ordered by Unicode value (U+xxxx))
Latin (ordered by Unicode value (U+xxxx))
Try this extension (it is called No Message Pane Sort by Mouse); according to the description:
No Message Pane Sort prevents accidental resorting of the message pane
by disabling mouse button clicks on the column headers. It is still
possible to sort messages by ctrl-clicking the header.
I tried it myself: it disables sort button and thus should be what ...
The most easiest, 3 steps Solution I can suggest you are,,,
Select the IP Address Column, apply Text to Column command.
In adjacent Column write this Formula
Finally Sort in Ascending order.
Check the Screen Shot.
Red is Original IP Address (in Column A).
Green after applied Text to Column (Column B to E).
I realize this is an old post, but in the interest of providing a working solution, I present the following.
Just put this formula in an adjacent cell and update the references to point to the cell containing your IP address (A1 in this example). This will produce a result similar to 010.121.008.030, which can then be sorted (correctly) alphabetically. Then ...
If by "name order" you mean a simple alphabetical sorting, you could just sort the find results, which works fine as long as the files do not contain a newline in their name:
find "$PHOTODIR" -iname "*.jpg" | sort
If you want to pass these as arguments to an image viewer—or any other command—you need to pipe them to xargs. This works out of the box as long ...
Press + E to open File Explorer, and then click onto the root of the "C" drive
Press Ctrl + Shift + 6 to change the root "C" drive folder view to Details view which will add the
Date modified column
If the Date modified doesn't show here for some reason, then simply right click on one of the other existing columns and then
Here'a a VBA function I wrote some time ago to solve the same problem.
It generates a padded version of an IPv4 address which sorts correctly.
Function SortAddress(Address As String) ' format address as XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX to permit sorting
Dim FirstByte As Integer, LastByte As Integer, I As Integer
SortAddress = ""
FirstByte = 1
For I =...
Set B2 to
=IF(A2=A3, 1, -2)
and set B3 to
=IF($A2=$A3, B2, IF($A3=$A4, IF(B2>0,3-B2,B2+3), IF(B2>0,-B2,B2)))
and drag it down to B30
(or the last row that contains data, whatever that is).
This will evaluate to a positive number
if this row is part of a duplicate value group
and a negative value if it isn’t
(i.e., if Column A contains a unique ...
Here is an answer that will take only 1 column of your table and converts the IPv4 address to base 10 numbering.
Since you are putting your data in column "M", this starts in cell M2 (M1 being the label). Encapsulating it as code gives one terrible mess, so I have used blockquote:
=INT(LEFT(M2, FIND(".", M2) - 1)) * 256 ^ 3 + INT(MID(M2, FIND(".", M2) + ...
Operating systems can really only use one of two basic methods, ASCII sorting or Natural sorting
ASCII gives this

which takes each single element & applies sort rules, without any other interpretation.
Natural sort attempts to handle such as numerical ...
Actually, the primary sort in the "Top Results" view ( the default ) of most SearchResults folders is a property hidden from dislpay: System.Search.Rank. This can be verified by examining the varous TopViews defined under: HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes

There are certain things I want to see in a directory listing, and so far none of the answers here meets all of the requirements below. My requirements for a directory listing:
Directories and files are sorted alphabetically
Directories are listed first
Symbolic links (symlinks) are sorted like files
Sorting is case-insensitive
