Dev Tip: Sort content in clipboard on MacOs & Linux

Run this in your terminal to sort the text in your clipboard

pbpaste | sort | pbcopy

Use `sort -n` to sort lines beginning with numbers.

pbpaste | sort -n | pbcopy

Code Break Down:
`pbpaste` paste the clipboard content into the standard input.
`sort` sorts the standard input.
`pbcopy` copies what comes from the standard output.

Run `man sort` to fine out more about the sorting options.

In Linux, you can add support for `pbpaste` and `pbcopy` by adding aliases commands to `xclip` in your ~/.bash_rc.
