It's to discuss the bash command (which is a shell, a command
line interpreter), not the other commands that that command may
run. firefox and openoffice are examples of other commands like
sort that you may have bash run, they can't all be discussed

However, "sort" is part of the standard Unix toolkit, so
comp.unix.shell is probably a good place to ask that question.
If you want to discuss things specific to the GNU implementation
of sort, you can go to gnu.utils.help.

That question is a bit of a FAQ though, so you could have looked
it up beforehand. It's also explained in the sort documentation
(at least GNU sort's one).

It won't work if the LC_ALL or LC_COLLATE environment variables
are set though.
