Sort \Sort\, n. [F. sorie (cf. It. sorta, sorte), from L. sors,

{Series}, and cf. {Assort}, {Consort}, {Resort}, {Sorcery},
{Sort} lot.]
1. A kind or species; any number or collection of individual
persons or things characterized by the same or like
qualities; a class or order; as, a sort of men; a sort of
horses; a sort of trees; a sort of poems.

2. Manner; form of being or acting.

through the world I did proclaim. --Spenser.

seen well by those that wear them. --Hooker.

Usage: {Sort}, {Kind}. Kind originally denoted things of the
same family, or bound together by some natural

which constitutes a particular lot of parcel, not
implying necessarily the idea of affinity, but of mere
assemblage. the two words are now used to a great
extent interchangeably, though sort (perhaps from its
original meaning of lot) sometimes carries with it a
slight tone of disparagement or contempt, as when we
say, that sort of people, that sort of language.

sort at English => English (Computer) Of Explained:

sort

1. To arrange a collection of items
in some specified order. The items - {records} in a file or
data structures in memory - consist of one or more {fields} or
members. One of these fields is designated as the "sort key"
which means the records will be ordered according to the value
of that field. Sometimes a sequence of key fields is
specified such that if all earlier keys are equal then the
later keys will be compared. Within each field some ordering
is imposed, e.g. ascending or descending numerical, {lexical
ordering}, or date.

Sorting is the subject of a great deal of study since it is a
common operation which can consume a lot of computer time.
There are many well-known sorting {algorithms} with different
time and space behaviour and programming {complexity}.

Examples are {quicksort}, {insertion sort}, {bubble sort},
{heap sort}, and {tree sort}. These employ many different
data structures to store sorted data, such as {arrays},
{linked lists}, and {binary trees}.

2. The {Unix} utility program for sorting lines of
files.

{Unix manual page}: sort(1).
