NAME

       psort - sort primitives in metafile as requested

SYNOPSIS

       psort [ +/-x ][ +/-y ][ +/-X ][ +/-Y ] file ..

DESCRIPTION

       Psort  reads each metafile file in sequence and sorts primitives between globals according
       to the option specification.  Lower case options mean  the  corresponding  minimum,  upper
       case  indicates  the  maximum  value.   A  '+'  before  the  option means sort in order of
       increasing values, '-' means decreasing.  The order the options appear on the command line
       is the order in which the extrema are examined.  For example, the options -Y +x would mean
       "sort on decreasing ymax, then increasing xmin values".

       If no input files are specified, the standard input is read.

EXAMPLE

       To sort the file "meta" in order of increasing xmax, then decreasing ymin:

         psort +X -y meta

FILES

       /tmp/psXXXXa /tmp/psXXXXb

BUGS

       Aborting the program will sometimes leave files in /tmp.
