How to display all rpm installed list sorted by date


I know "rpm -qa --last" lists all rpm with date and time. But I want to sort the list by date, with earlier installed rpms displayed ahead. So it needs pipe, ie something like "rpm -qa --last | ...". What is exact script to do it? Any thought is welcome.

Read the man page for the sort command.
