Sort-object - Powershell


Is it possible to use "sort-object" based on result from a function?

$arr | sort-object function

If I understand you correctly, then yes, that should be possible. In case you're familiar with the "calculated properties" in Select-Object: it's similar with Sort-Object.
You can pass the Property argument not only object properties, but hash tables as well, with the expression you want to use for sorting.
This, for example, sorts the string array by their lengths:
'AAAA', 'BB', 'C', 'DDD' | Sort-Object -Property @{expression={$_.Length}}
