       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 stdout, 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.
