Description michael 1999-01-18 12:14:37 UTC
'Sort' program (from textutils-1.22-7) still does not use settings LC_* variables for right (localised) sorting. Solution is use sort from textutils-1.22d which behave correct.
Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-03-22 19:58:59 UTC
Michael, do you know of such a release? I can't find it on ftp.gnu.org.
Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-03-22 20:15:59 UTC
The latest dev release, 1.22f, does NOT have LC_COLLATE / strcoll code included. I just checked. So they may have taken it out since 1.22d, but the latest stuff does not have it. This will have to wait for a future release.
Comment 3 michael 1999-03-23 12:02:59 UTC
I try textutils-1.22h (ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/gnu/alpha/gnu/fetish/textutils-1.22h.tar.gz) just now. It has locale code included (as well as 1.22f version! :-) and (both) work right. $ grep LC sort.c char *s = setlocale (LC_ALL, locale); s = setlocale (LC_ALL, ""); char *current_locale_string = setlocale (LC_ALL, ""); $ grep strcol sort.c return strcoll (((const struct month *) m1)->name, diff = strcoll (s1, s2); diff = strcoll (s1, s2); diff = strcoll (copy_a, copy_b); diff = strcoll (ap, bp);
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-23 15:58:59 UTC
ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/textutils* shows only textutils-1.22f.tar.gz -> fetish/textutils-1.22f.tar.gz It is true that in fetish there are later instances of textutils, but if the textutils maintainer thinks that even 1.22f is an alpha release and tries to hide later releases, I really do not feel comfortable overriding that decision. I have no reason to assume that he does not have valid reasons for not making that a more public release.
Comment 5 Jay Turner 1999-06-29 17:31:59 UTC
Michael, what is the status of this?? Are you comfortable calling the 6.0 textutils the real deal and closing this?
Comment 6 Michael K. Johnson 1999-07-13 16:20:59 UTC
This will be resolved when we upgrade to a new version of textutils when it is released by the textutils author. ------- Additional Comments From 08/12/99 06:06 ------- Textutils 2.0 have benn released (1999-08-06). Hope this is final solution of 'sort & LC_COLLATE' problem. Thanks
