I'm 99% sure that there is no other way than either using a replacement tool, or than writing a small script, like this, for instance:

===
WORKAROUND:
===
Code:
.key arg
.bra {
.ket }
run >nil: list >PIPE:tmp{$$} {arg} nohead
sort PIPE:tmp{$$} to *
The above is for bog-standard OS 2.x/3.x and meant to be a workaround. A perfect solution is below!
But at least it also works on any OS >= 2.04+
Save it to a name of your choice (eg 'listit') and apply the script (s) bit so that it gets executed without 'execute':

Code:
protect listit s add
NOTE: this script still supports all list commands, so listit #?.lha will list all LHA archives!

This usenet post may also come in handy, unfortunately though, the mentioned List42_7 has been withdrawn from Aminet.

===
REAL SOLUTION:
===

Consider that the pipe handler shipped with OS 2.x/3.0/3.1 is not able to correctly pipe between commands, hence it may be regarded as 'partly broken'!
- Get working PIPE from Aminet (by Osma Ahvenlampi).
- Copy pipe to C:
- Make two S:shell-startup modifications as described in the docs of the new pipe handler (inside the *.lha) and reboot the Amiga.

And now do this simple line henceforth:

Code:
list #? | sort in: out:
WORKS!
You may as well try this on bog-standard OS 2.04 or 3.0/3.1 - it will NOT work! (Guaranteed! )

I know.
3.5 has fixes awaited by Amigans for YEARS.
(This functionality had already been available in old MS-DOS from about 1988, so no wonder this had provided a lot of fodder for PeeCee-Amiga-battles back then)

If you use zshell ( aminet, freeware at least ) there is a better list command ( iirc it could sort ) and the shell itself is much faster.

Also i created aliases for unix like commands to avoid ls instead of list, delete instead of rm and so on.

I suggest you to give it a try

hmm i remember finding one shell in one of the asm_course.lha or asmcourse.lha from aminet and it had a ls function built in.

I might just find a list replacement :/. Or I may have to learn c and modify the commodore one =]

If you edit the Kickstart roms? can you use a standard burner to burn it back to a prom chip and slap her in your A1200? Or is this another topic?

sorry andreas. Your alternative idea is a good idea, a bit long tho. Looks like UNIX shell programming.

I have no idea what the .key and .bra in your scrip do, as my A600HD and A1200HD were 2nd hand I didn't receive the manuals so I really don't know how to fully utilise AmigaDOS from KS 2.0+

And also with your script do I edit s:shell-startup (or what ever its called) and call it.

"list #? la" alias newlistscript ;??

Well, then try the solution with the PIPE handler replacement.
This should do the job nicely.
Feel free to pester me with any questions if you're stuck anywhere.

(What a shame that a BROKEN pipe handler was shipped with the original workbenches! )

Third solution:
Meanwhile, I got List version 42.7 (that never made it into workbench and is now withdrawn from Aminet) thanks to Amiga Rob!
You could just try to overwrite the old List command by the new one, which is now able to do lots of nice things like sorting etc.
Gimme a shout if you missed the file on the zone.

no I got the file thank you, it was a nice upload, although those other options with list 42.7 I think it was usergroups were rather interesting???.

Was the next amiga WB from commodore supposed to have networking built in?
