Anyone seeing this as well? sort goes berzerk on my system when piped
head (or less) when it is fed with a 'specially prepared' input file.
- only happens on x86_64
- does not happen for 'LC_COLLATE=C sort tt | head'
'specially prepared' input file? (see bottom of post).
Anyone ** NOT ** seeing this?
Yes. I just tried it under tcsh and bash with 6000, 8000, and 8150 lines,
and it works for me. LANG=en_US.UTF-8 implies LC_COLLATE=en_US.UTF-8
but I also set LC_COLLATE explicitely and retried. sort tt | head
and then returns to the prompt.
Same here, at least using bash
