Unix sort by column

Sort is a very useful unix utility. Simplest usage is here::

ls | sort

but that's not very interesting. Let's say we want to sort all the files by size:

ls -l | sort -k5 -n

What this command does exactly sort by 5th field using numeric order. Another useful option you may use is -t which allows you to select the field separator.
