Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I sorted a large mailing list and the result is in almost sorted order, but not quite. The sort was invoked in the default manner, just "sort". See (below) a segment of the output file. (Note: the actual files have a street address following each name. I have omitted the addresses to avoid complaints about disclosing personal information on-line.)
I expect all people named KATZ to be grouped together, but they aren't. This phenomenon occurs elsewhere in the output file, so it has nothing to do with surnames beginning with the character string KATZ.
