Description James Baum 2000-01-21 03:02:54 EST
rup(1) ignores the arguments -h, -l and -t (sort by hostname, load or
uptime) if it is given a list of hostnames. It doesn't sort at all then,
but just uses the list in the order given.
Only tested on x86, but I presume that applies to all platforms.

rpm -qvf `which rup`

Hmm, looks like a buglet in bugzilla as well.
My original short title was:
"rup <arg> host1 host2 ... hostN doesn't sort by <arg>"
 or to put it in html:
"rup &lt;arg&gt; host1 host2 ... hostN doesn't sort by &lt;arg&gt;"
Html problem...

Main point:
rup -h gamma beta alpha

should return
alpha up ...
beta  up ...
gamma up ...

but it returns
gamma up ...
beta  up ...
alpha up ...

This is not a bug. It simply processes the command line args in the order that
they were given, which is the expected behaviour.
If you need ordering simply use a pipe:

rup <arg> host1 host2 ... hostN | sort

which should return the wanted ordered list.

Read ya, Phil
