+I have also wasted days with sort -k. I recommend you to read the real GNU
+documentation ; the Debian info page is unfortunately a fake.
+
+http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/manual/html_node/sort-invocation.html#sort-invocation
+
+In the info page, the behaviour of sort -k is better explained. It is
+such a
+tragedy that this crucial information is so hard to obtain. For instance,
+search engines like Google do not perform well at giving the
+precedence to the
+info page.
+
+Anyway, thank you for your blog post, that reminded me of the
+usefulness of
+'join'. I need it at work today. You made my day !
