       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

       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.

       -s, --source
	   Use source index field ordering. Configuration Item:

       -h, --help
	   Show a short usage summary.

       -v, --version
	   Show the program version.

       -c, --config-file
	   Configuration File; Specify a configuration file to use. The
	   program will read the default configuration file and then this
	   configuration file. If configuration settings need to be set before
	   the default configuration files are parsed specify a file with the
	   APT_CONFIG environment variable. See apt.conf(5) for syntax

       -o, --option
	   Set a Configuration Option; This will set an arbitrary
	   configuration option. The syntax is -o Foo::Bar=bar.	 -o and
	   --option can be used multiple times to set different options.


       apt-sortpkgs returns zero on normal operation, decimal 100 on error.
