@ParthianShot, your point about missing updates is a fair point. However, for your other point, if a rogue software is running in your name, it having write access to an area in $LD_LIBRARY_PATH would be the least of your worries as it's already got write access to a lot worse and more reliable areas like your .bash*, crontab, .forward, and all configuration files by all the software you use (where it can for instance set LD_{PRELOAD,LIBRARY_PATH} but would typically do a lot worse)

comment Order of text jumbled when printing
If it didn't have LFs, the file would be a single line. More likely the file is in Microsoft format with CR+LF line delimitors.

comment Test if integer series is strictly increasing
Actually, not fully, just some amount of data: 40k in my tests, though is affected by the -S option (though I couldn't manage to make it read less).

comment Test if integer series is strictly increasing
Note that GNU sort (as opposed to Solaris sort for instance) seems to read the input fully before reporting the disorder even if the disorder is on the second line.

It fails for an input with 0, 2. Or 0, -1.
