[PLUG] sort by field ...

The sort command I grew up with has a +n option, where n is the field (usually space delimited) to key the sort on.
Currently, the options imply I have to create a key character-position by character-position; how do I do that with random-length data?

(I'm analyzing log files and I'm used to piping them through this ALL THE TIME HOW COME NOW THIS IS BORKEND)?

seriously, is this a bsd-ism, or something?
