I have a file with one word on each line and I want to sort the file alphabetically. There's 2050 words in the file, so doing it manually would take a long time. Is there a bash script to sort it alphabetically and rewrite it to the file?
sort [file name]. That prints the sorted list to your terminal. If you want to redirect it to a file you can do
sort [original file] > [sorted file]. If you have items starting with numbers, you can do
sort -h insted of sort for a more intuitive sorting.
