Some more words would be helpful. you can run
M-x shell-command-on-region 

line-1
line-2
line-4
line-10
line-5

Making it in a region and run sort on it yields
line-1
line-10
line-2
line-4
line-5

other option you may have run
(shell-command-to-string "ls -l /tmp/*")
C-u C-x C-e insert that stuff at point here

If you want it interactive you have to write a wrapper for it and than
there is with-output-to-temp-buffer which may of some use too

Friedrich
