       evmsort - sort events

       show_template]] sport_spec] [filename |

       The command reads and sorts a stream of EVM events.  By default, events
       are read from and are sorted into ascending  timestamp  order.	Sorted
       events  are  written  to	 the  command's	 stream in the form of raw EVM

       The sort order can  be  specified  by  supplying	 a  sort_spec,	either
       through	the  option  or	 by  setting  the  environment variable to the
       required specification.	The specification is a character string of the


       The  key_item is the name of any EVM standard data item and the charac‐
       ter is optional.

       If the special key_item is specified, the event's data item is expanded
       as  described  in  the  evmshow(1) manpage, and the resulting string is
       used as the sort key.

       The optional trailing or character indicates  ascending	or  descending
       sort.  By default, items are sorted in ascending order.

       Multiple	 items	in  the	 string	 are separated by colon characters The
       left-most key_item in the specification is the most significant key.

       If a key_item that is included in the sort specification is not present
       in  an event read from the input stream, the item is considered to have
       a low value for that event.  For example, if  input  events  are	 being
       sorted  in ascending order according to their data items, and one event
       does not contain a name, that event appears first in the output stream.

       If the option is specified, automatically starts and pipes  the	sorted
       event  stream  into  it,	 producing  a  sorted and formatted display of
       events.	If a argument is also specified with  the  specified  template
       string is passed to through its own option.

       See the evmshow(1) manpage for more information.

       Template string to be passed to
		 if the option is also specified.  If the option is not speci‐
		 fied,	this argument is ignored.  See the  evmshow(1) manpage
		 for a description of the template string.

       filename	 Reads event sources from filename.  If filename  is  omitted,

   Environment Variables
       The following environment variables affect the execution of

       This variable contains a string formatted as described for a
			   sort_spec.  If the option is omitted, the string is
			   used as the sort_spec.

       The following exit values are returned:

       Successful completion.
       An error occurred.

       ·  The following example retrieves all events with a priority of 300 or
	  greater,  sorts  them into descending order of priority (most urgent
	  event first) and then ascending order of time (oldest event  first),
	  and automatically runs to display them.

       ·  The  following  example yields a list of all events, sorted with the
	  latest event first within

       ·  The following example yields a list of all events, sorted  first  in
	  order of their formatted messages and then sorted in ascending order
	  of time.  Events are passed to for display and subsequently  to  the
	  command for viewing.

       The command rejects attempts to output raw events to a terminal device.
