The sort function's second argument must be a function. Below, I use an
anonymous function but you could also define and declare it. Think of this
second function as a map function which is applied to the vector you're
sorting.
Sorting is done in place, too. So you may want to add a copy() function to
your definition of vo.
event zeek_init() {
local v: vector of interval = vector(1min,2min,1min,4min,6min,1min);
local vo : vector of interval = sort(copy(v), function(a: interval, b:
interval): int {return a > b ? 1 : -1;} );
for (i in vo) {
print vo[i];
}
}
