Description Ric Anderson 1999-12-27 21:46:13 EST
The version of sort shipped with RH6.1 sorts in a case-insensitive
manner by default (as though -f was specified).  I can't find any
way to disable this behavior, and force a case sensitive sort.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-01-06 11:58:59 EST
This was actually a feature of textutils 2.0: Sorting by locales.
I've reverted sort to the old behavior in Raw Hide.
Use "sort -l" to get the behavior from 6.1.
