OPTION EQUALS in SORT.

Post by Chitra Taneja » Sun Oct 23, 2016 2:47 pm

Hi,

What does "OPTION EQUALS" do in SORT, exactly? Is it same as SORT FIELDS=COPY?

EQUALS specifies that the sequence of equal collating records is to be preserved from the input to output,

No way related to SORT FIELDS=COPY.

Whenever you sort a file, if you have the same key, the input sequence/order is preserved.
