Description sidlon 2000-03-10 17:05:33 EST
Sorting the following text with sort 2.0 produces incorrect results when run on a default RH6.1 installation:

   I have corresponded with Jim Meyering (meyering@ascend.com) from the GNU textutils project, who informed me that this is not a bug with sort itself, but the result of a conflict between sort 2.0 and the value of the environment variable LC_ALL as set by the default installation of RH.  For sort to work properly, LC_ALL must be set to POSIX.  Any other value will lead to incorrect results.  According to Jim, this problem could be fixed by changing the default value for LC_ALL or by fixing the locale tables.
