I frequently try to use the sort function, but find it often does not
perform an accurate sort, especially a numerical sort.
I am using version 2.0a under RedHat Linux 6.2.
Several shell scripts that worked fine under 5.0 now fail to work
successfully. Just pipe a list of a couple of hundred integers to "sort
-n" and you will find that you don't get an accurately sorted output. It
is mostly correct but will have numerous figures in the wrong place.
