LC_COLLATE (was Re: SVN Test Repo updated)


The sort alghorithm has nothing to do with ls, but with your selection of
LC_COLLATE.  But then, BSD (at least the variant used in MacOSX) is way
behind current l10n standards.

At least they do not break s/[A-Z]// which on "well-internationalized" OSes is case-insensitive with most locales other than C.


I still haven't dug enough to understand if the responsible for this is the POSIX specification for localization, the ANSI specification for strcoll, or somebody in the glibc team. But I know that it was the most-reported sed "bug" before I explicitly flagged it as a non-bug in the manual.

I can only guess the outcry if Perl started obeying LC_COLLATE.
