I use the putty windows client to connect to my linux boxes and always run into this problem:
sort â sort lines of text files
sort [OPTION]... [FILE]...
Write sorted concatenation of all FILE(s) to standard output.
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options
âb, ââignoreâleadingâblanks ignore leading blanks
consider only blanks and alphanumeric characters
fold lower case to upper case characters
Luckily there is an easy fix:
I don't know why Fedora sets the LANG variable to something that breaks your terminal.
