Default Sorting on the file, given a list of files-with-path (beta)

Have a file you want to sort on the last field?

IOW a file or a pipe:
say, files.txt


Untested, but found a use-this-time working solution

cat files.txt | gtr -s \/ " " | perl -lne 'print join " ", reverse split / /' | sort

That or later varation with a slight modification enabled here a tee-to-a-file
that I can read later as a solution to this week's problem (a few files accidentally
deleted from a backup after a disk crash... so I can ascertain whether they
can/should be replaced/lost etc. ... most were found elsewhere in the
filesystem, a few not... )

Note that this solution was from a thread, and is only mostly understood here.
