Right again.
uuhhh... guess what?
Windows NT comes with its own 'sort.exe'. I recently installed a Win2000
service pack, and it put all that garbage back in my path (and I didn't
think about it until now)... Doesn't matter if %DJGPP%\..\bin is in front of
system32 in the %PATH% or not. Of course, being a @?&!! Microsoft executable
and living its own universe, it naturally uses a totally different argument
structure and runs completely different from the standard Posix 'sort'. Can
you spell c-o-n-f-l-i-c-t ?? It was then naturally .. ahem.. 'sort-ed out'
:-)

ALL USERS: beware of imposters - windoze executables parading themselves to
be 'find' and 'sort' but actually are just a pain in the -

Well, my DJGPP configuration must have been OK. Aside from two completely
Windoze2000-related issues, GCC 3.04 compiles and runs fine for me... so far
:-)
