http://unix.stackexchange.com – Possibly a simple solution I misplaced. How can I get the output of atq sorted chronologically, so I can easily see who's due to run next? The man page for sort doesn't have anything built-in to recognize timestamps like the following: atq 1264 Sat Mar 24 15:03:00 2012 a master 1445 Sat Mar 24 20:28:00 2012 a master 1548 Sun Mar 25 15:09:00 2012 a master 1193 Sat Mar 24 11:03:00 2012 a master 1359 Sat Mar 24 17:13:00 2012 a master 1726 Mon Mar 26 21:24:00 2012 a master 1736 Mon Mar 26 22:04:00 2012 a master 1748 Mon Mar 26 22:46:00 2012 a master 1704 Mon Mar 26 20 (HowTos)
