USAGE: sort-bed [--help] [--version] [--check-sort] [--max-mem <val>] [--tmpdir <path>] [--unique] [--duplicates] <file1.bed> <file2.bed> <...>

Sort BED file(s). May use '-' to indicate stdin. Results are sent to stdout.
<val> for --max-mem may be 8G, 8000M, or 8000000000 to specify 8 GB of memory. --tmpdir is useful only with --max-mem. --unique can be used to print only unique BED elements (similar to 'sort -u'). Cannot be used with --duplicates. --duplicates can be used to print only duplicated or repeated elements (similar to 'uniq -d'). Cannot be used with --unique.
