Could someone with an [open]solaris system
respond with the output from these commands?
printf " 2\n11\n" | sort -b -k1.2n
printf " 2\n11\n" | sort -k1.2n
printf " 2\n11\n" | sort -k1.2nb
Specifically I'm wondering about the first command
which returns 11 2 on linux, while I think one could interpret
POSIX to mean it should return 2 11 (like the last command).
