Certainly a homework question.

sunnycoder really should have written:

man sort

Amrita, guess you are probably a newbie to Unix.
So, "man" is the first place to start. If you want to find out about the usage of any shell command, you would say
man <command>

For example, you want to know more about usage of "ls" command, you would say:
man ls

at the shell prompt.

Let us know if you need more help on that.

prakashagr,
That was rude !!!

No question is a silly question,specially if a person is new to an area.
It might be a homework question but then we can always guide a person in the right direction.
There is no need for discouraging comments.


bhatia_amrita,
If you have not found a solution please post here again with what progress you have made and whether you are stuck anywhere.
It would help us if you also give us the environment you are working ....like in your case the operating system etc....

The "man" (stands for Unix "manual") came up because we assumed you are on Unix.

Hope that you get a solution soon.
Cheers.

I am sorry......
Every one was correct in assuming Unix.....I was under the impression that I am posting in the C programming area.
