hai,
SORT it is a UTILITY program used to sort the file based on the offset externally in JCL

Here is one example


//JOB1 JOB
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT = A
//SORTIN DD DSN=FILE.ORIGINAL, DISP = SHR
//SORTOUT DD DSN=FILE.SORTED,DISP=SHR
//SYSIN DD *
SORT FIELDS=(2,5,A,CH)
/*
//

BY USING THE ABOVE CODE WE CAN SORT THE FILE.ORIGINAL AND THE RESULTANT FILE WILL BE IN THE FILE.SORTED

I think it is more specific if u have any doubts plz let me know
bye
