How to order lists alphabetically

    Keywords: SL description

Save a list as a text file and then run from the command line:

       sort inputfile > outputfile.

Useful trick to know.

Unfortunately, this doesn't work properly - 'Thick' should be before 'Thickness' (sort fooled due to 'thick|' v. 'thick') and 'approach ko' and 'Approach ko' should be the same etc. Never trust a computer to do what a human can do better :-)
