bash sort using a tab delimiter

There are several ways to sort things when fields are tab separated. The simplest I have found is
Code:
TAB=`echo -e "\t"`
sort -t"$TAB" -k 5,3 scrambledFile.tsv > sorted.tsv
syntax may vary for dos shells, possibly as
Code:
set tab=echo "\t"
sort -t"%tab%" -k5,3 scrambledFile.tsv > sortedFile.tsv
As of this posting, both variations are subject to verification of the syntax.

Sorting pictures, removing duplicates

EDIT 2012-02-03:
In Debian I just discovered "duff". A tool to find duplicate files
---


All files with their md5sum
Code:
find . -type f -exec md5sum '{}' ';' > pics_complete.txt
Lists with only md5sum, once with duplicates removed
Code:
cat pics_complete.txt | sed -r "s|^(.*) .*|\1|"| sort > pics_sorted.txt
cat pics_complete.txt | sed -r "s|^(.*) .*|\1|"| sort -u > pics_sorted-uniq.txt
md5sum...
