Description Timur 1999-11-15 17:43:16 UTC
sort doesn't work in binary mode properly. Input: ADa aba ADc Output: aba ADa ADc Correct output: ADa ADc aba Just figure out, how many people uses sort in their scripts. In example, vim+ctags doesn't work, cuz ctags uses sort as external sort program, and vim by default doesn't understand unsorted tags files.

sort is paying attention to locales now. What's your locale setting?
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 1999-11-22 17:18:59 UTC
It's not a bug, it's a feature - the new sort is POSIX compliant, therefore some flags have changed. (See info sort)

While this isn't a bug in sort, isn't it a problem with the RH6.1 distribution that the default installation doesn't set the LC_ALL variable to work with sort 2.0? Considering how many people depend on the sort command, it shouldn't take additional tinkering to install RH and have a usable sort.
