Definite's Extractor

My findings on Life, Linux, Open Source, and so on.


sort in Unix system is a wonderful tool, however, it does not handles utf8 files properly, because sort tends to treat them as ASCII strings. There is some solution like msort, but I never get it work.

I therefore write a small program, ucs4_sort, that sorts lines of text files by their UCS-4 encoding. This program DOES NOT implement the Unicode collation algorithm, so do not use the on locale sensitive data.

Please go here for further details.
