Description Erik Troan 2000-08-10 18:15:18 UTC
[ewt@mercury comps]$ echo HELLO | LANG="" grep '[a-z]'
[ewt@mercury comps]$ echo HELLO | LANG="en_US" grep '[a-z]'

This is really, really bad.

That's what ISO/IEC 14651 mandates.
Basically, A comes right after a, then comes b, then B etc.
Talk to Ulrich if unsure.

Comment 2 Erik Troan 2000-08-11 15:01:25 UTC
In ENGLISH? This is absolutely insane, and is going to kill folks shell scripts.
If this is true, we
need to set the english locale to C, not en_US.

Jakub, please make sure this is true and tell us if we just can't use en_US
without frying shell
