sort comma separated fields in row after =

sort comma separated fields in row after =

(OP)

hello
I have the input file having lines:

dsafa=jadgd,afasfa,werww,bsdfasf
sdfas=sfjkhssdf,sdfisf,jiioww,sofjsss
sdfas=klsjfls,sfkhskjf,asafja,zxfssf
safas=oaiudaj,adasdfj,asfkjs,akjdhjkd
zsfda=hhdsdfs,cssfs,aodkoa,lsjdfssf

how sort in each line fields on the right side of the = (the comma separated ones) - so for example first two lines would be on output:

dsafa=afasfa,bsdfasf,jadgd,werww
sdfas=jiioww,sdfisf,sfjkhssdf,sofjsss

RE: sort comma separated fields in row after =

Hi

Personally I prefer Perl in cases like this :

CODE --> command line

perl -nlaF= -e 'print$F[0],"=",join",",sort split",",$F[1]' /input/file 

Feherke.
feherke.ga

RE: sort comma separated fields in row after =

Wouldn't this do it?

CODE

sort -t = -k 2 /path/to/input.day

Not what I understood from the requirement.

RE: sort comma separated fields in row after =

Oh, gotcha. I thought it was sort rows by the fields after the '='. Much different.
