NAME
       apt-sortpkgs - Utility to sort package index files

SYNOPSIS
       apt-sortpkgs [-s] [-o=config_string] [-c=config_file] filename... {-v | --version}
                    {-h | --help}

DESCRIPTION
       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 file.

OPTIONS
       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: APT::SortPkgs::Source.

       -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 information.

       -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.
