DESCRIPTION

  The basic function of sort is to sort ASCII-files in
  alphabetical order.  But its functions are not restricted to
  sorting.  I implemented many options which allow to manipulate
  file(s) in different ways.
  The sort program is started from Shell.


NEW FEATURES

  (registered version)

  * added an option which deletes spaces and tabs at the end of a line
  * added an option which removes a given number of lines at the
    beginning of a file (selectable for the first and the other files)
  * added a option for sorting in two passes
  * changed the -i option
  * increased sorting speed


FEATURES

  (unregistered version)

  * sorting files alphabetically (ascending, descending)
  * distinguishing and no distinguishing of capitals and small letters
  * erasing of empty lines

  (registered version)

  * sorting files alphabetically (ascending, descending)
  * sorting with columns, variable length of sort string

  * all functions are operating in a given range, if desired
  * selectable distinguishing of capitals and small letters
  * erasing of empty lines
  * erasing of double lines (improved now!)
  * dividing a file into two, according to the given pattern,
    which is specified with the -q|Q option.
  * reversing of the file (without sorting)
