Wordlist utilities - sort wordlist


The toolkit offers 6 modes of wordlist sorting; 4 of them are common, and 2 are extended. The common sorting modes include sorting wordlists in the alphabetical order (both ascending and descending) and by word length. When sorting alphabetically or by word length, the program automatically removes word duplicates.

Additionally, you can sort a wordlist by length and save the results in multiple files, associated with word length. For example, file 1.txt would contain 1-character words, 2.txt - two-character, etc.

The sixth sorting mode works similarly. At the same time, the program sorts the source wordlist in the alphabetical order and creates several target wordlists that correspond with the first letter of the word. For example, all words beginning with letter A would be written to file A.txt, words beginning with B - to B.txt, etc. You should keep in mind that certain words may begin with characters that cannot be used in a file name. In this case, the program automatically suggests a replacement by issuing an appropriate warning in the messages window.

If the 'Ignore case' option is set, the sorting is carried out regardless of letter case; i.e., the words bad, Bad or BAD are considered identical, with all the ensuing consequences. 

Target wordlist name may be the same as the source; however, that is not recommended.

Sorting large files (supports files larger than 4 GB) involves intensive use of RAM; the amount of it can be limited by the respective option. For large files, it is not recommended to set the memory limit less than 16 MB, as that can affect the speed of sorting.

While sorting, the program may create auxiliary files in the application's temporary folder. Make sure that the disk with the temporary folder has enough room for the swap files.
