cat FILE|sort +1 -n Returns ... +1: No such file or directory
These also fail
> sort +1 -n /tmp/trash
sort: open failed: +1: No such file or directory
> sort +1 -n < /tmp/trash
The above commands fail in linux, but not Solaris.

I'm most interested in getting the syntax in the Subject: to work.
I want to sort numerically on the 2nd column. I read that sort uses tmp space, so I set $TMP and $TMPDIR to /tmp, which exists and is writable, no joy.
