I want the series to sort as 1,2,3,10,11,12 not 1,10,11,12,2,3. The sort functions do not seem to have any effect when used in this context:
... | sort -num(myfield)
I don't see any examples of using the sort functions in the documentation or other questions. :(
I have also tried:
... | sort by num(myfield)
i'm not sure why this isn't working for you. it seems to be fine for me...
did you have a particular search/example that wasn't working? i can help you with that and perhaps add that as an example to the topic. thanks.
You can also use the fields command to specify the fields.
| fields "column1" col2 col3 col4
