CMSort for Windows 10 - Full description

Do you (still) need to sort plain text files? Do you (still) use a 16-bit DOS sort program? Are you aware of the fact that execution of 16-bit programs is no longer possible under the 64-bit versions of Windows? Do you need a true 32-bit sort program?
If at least one answer is "yes", then you should take a look at CMSort, a freeware 32-bit command line sort utility for Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP/Vista/7. An additional advantage of CMsort is its capability to handle not only text files with DOS/Windows end-of-line-marks, but also files with UNIX, MAC, or even mixed (!) end-of-line marks! CMsort is also able to sort files with fixed-length records.

· process DOS, WINDOWS, UNIX, or MAC text files (and mixed types)
· process files with fixed-length records
· three key types: string case sensitive, string case insensitive, number
· supports multi-part keys
· each (part-) key can be defined as ascending or descending
· optionally ignore blank or empty records
· optionally ignore records with duplicate keys
· optionally ignore records with duplicate keys and write them to separate file
· select path for temporary files
· adjust usage of physical memory
· 2 to 5 way merging
· optionally exclude header lines from sorting
