It is almost definitely a locale weirdness thing. To get an idea of your local(e) sort order, try running the following: It's probably not what you might suspect.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; { no locale; print "\nNO Locale:\n\n"; print +(join ' ', sort grep /\w/, map { chr } 0..255), "\n"; } { use locale; print "\nWith 'use locale;':\n\n"; print +(join ' ', sort grep /\w/, map { chr } 0..255), "\n"; }
