comment How to sort a collection of lines from different files?
thanks for the awk FNR tip, but I also want to print the filename before sorted column. It needs storing "filename secondColumn" somehow. I think @Warwick's array suggestion will work.

with certain versions of sed you don't need to do -i.bak just -i will do (but of course w/o backup file)
