@Rudic i tried your solution:

However, I do not get the desired output. Below is how i debug your code:

Code:
iplist=$1
declare -A IPASS
IFS=,
for i in $iplist;
   do
     echo "Value is:$i"
     IPASS[$i]=${#IPASS[@]};
   done

echo "Printing ARRAY:${IPASS[*]}"

IFS=$' \t\n'

{ while read LN
    do [ ${IPASS[$LN]} ] &&     { RC=${IPASS[$LN]}
                                  unset IPASS[$LN]
                                }
        echo "$RC">>moht.txt
        echo "$LN">>moht1.txt
    done < file
  for i in ${!IPASS[@]}
    do
      echo ":$i:" >> checkthis.txt
      echo "*${IPASS[$i]}*" >> checkthis1.txt
    done
} |
    sort -s | cut -f2-

Neither checkthis.txt or checkthis1.txt is generated.

moht1.txt has the unsorted IP filedetails listings.

Can you please guide me as to how I can redirect the output of your code to a file so that I have the desired output shared in the original post. I also tried sort -s | cut -f2- >> final_output.txt but it too did not have the desired output.

Of course not.

If you modify a working, tested code snippet, you better know EXACTLY what you are doing.

@Rudic can you tell me where do you exactly store the final sorted output in a file or variable? Because that is what i m looking for. Here is your exact code with the unexpected output as is.

Code:
$ cat tryme.sh
iplist=$1

declare -A IPASS
IFS=,
for i in $iplist;   do  IPASS[$i]=${#IPASS[@]};   done
IFS=$' \t\n'

{ while read LN
    do [ ${IPASS[$LN]} ] &&     { RC=${IPASS[$LN]}
                                  unset IPASS[$LN]
                                }
        echo "$RC       $LN"
    done < file
  for i in ${!IPASS[@]}
    do  echo "${IPASS[$i]}      $i"
    done
} |
    sort -s | cut -f2-



 ./tryme.sh '10.9.9.25,10.9.9.43,10.9.9.42,10.9.9.26,10.9.9.42,10.9.9.41,10.9.9.45,10.9.9.202,10.9.9.39'

This output is how i want but do you see the output that i get. It has serial number printed matching the number of ips i.e
Code:
0 
0
0
1
1
1
2
2
3 
.... And so on

before the needed data on each of the lines. Please see my output from the previous post.

I have your code as you gave with no changes. I never skipped cut -f2- but not sure why is it not kicking in for me. Any guesses ?

Not sure if this is concerning but in my output you can see this error: ./tryme.sh: line 9: IPASS: bad array subscript for this line number 9 here
Code:
  8 { while read LN
  9     do [ ${IPASS[$LN]} ] &&     { RC=${IPASS[$LN]}
 10                                   unset IPASS[$LN]

Here is my system details:

Code:
$ uname -a

Another issue that i see is that when "NO" ips are matched it should not output any file details in the results(output) but it somehow does. Please see my output below:

Code:
$ ./tryme.sh '10.9.9.20,10.9.9.40,10.9.9.40,10.9.9.20,10.9.9.40,10.9.9.41,10.9.9.40,10.9.9.200,10.9.9.30'
./tryme.sh: line 10: IPASS: bad array subscript
