You should really try to read the help file first.
//filter -wwct 1 32 @temp @temp
Does a normal sorting. 32 is the ascii value of space. Here, it is not important which number you use since you're sorting from the beginning of the line (hence the number 1).
//filter -wwca @temp @temp
Does a normal sorting too. As the help file says, the [alias] parameter is optional: if not specified, the default sorting method is the well-known ascending alphabetical sorting.
//filter -wwcte 1 32 @temp @temp
Does a reverse sorting.
And a minor detail, as you can see I didn't use any wildcard pattern; if not specified, /filter acts on all lines, the same as if you were using *.
Btw, these commands sort the text area of the side-listbox-window. To sort the side-listbox, include the l and L switches, ie //filter -wwlLct .....
