Re: Taming the "lsblk" command




DUH ;/
I was so focused on lsblk demonstrating with its graphical output that it COULD do what I wanted that I didn't think about an external sort,
Thank you

When I do
  >lsblk -o name,label
I get a nice graphical result in _STRICT_  *ALPHA_NUMERIC* order.

However when I do > lsblk -l -o name,label
I get > sdc14 good-fvwm

I wish to feed the output of "lsblk -l -o name,label" to a script which
*DEPENDS* on input being in strict alpha-numeric order.

How?
TIA
