TSORT(1) TSORT(1) NAME tsort - topological sort SYNOPSIS tsort [ file ] DESCRIPTION Tsort produces on the standard output a totally ordered list of items consistent with a partial ordering of items men- tioned in the input file. If no file is specified, the stan- dard input is understood. The input consists of pairs of items (nonempty strings) sep- arated by blanks. Pairs of different items indicate order- ing. Pairs of identical items indicate presence, but not ordering. DIAGNOSTICS Odd data: there is an odd number of fields in the input file. BUGS Uses a quadratic algorithm; not worth fixing for the typical use of ordering a library archive file.
