apt-sortpkgs - Utility to sort package index files


apt-sortpkgs [-s] [-o=config_string] [-c=config_file] filename... {-v | --version}
{-h | --help}


apt-sortpkgs will take an index file (source index or package index) and sort the records
so that they are ordered by the package name. It will also sort the internal fields of
each record according to the internal sorting rules.

All output is sent to standard output; the input must be a seekable file.


All command line options may be set using the configuration file, the descriptions
indicate the configuration option to set. For boolean options you can override the config
file by using something like -f-,--no-f, -f=no or several other variations.
