Hello Arnold,

I agree that they are older versions.  We are deploying software in a Bell 
Canada production environment and we have a server that was deployed in 2012 
that is running RHEL 5.8 and one deployed this year running 6.5.  Red Hat tends 
to patch older versions rather than updating, and Bell has not, as far as I 
know, deployed any RHEL 7 servers yet.  

I'll try the locale change when I can get a window.  The environment is running 
a number of Tivoli applications (Workload Scheduler, DataStage...) that are 
also locale sensitive so I'll see how it works out.  There are some limitations 
on what I can change as we are trying to match an existing server (yes, trying 
to make a RHEL 6.5 server match a RHEL 5.8 server, we already had some issues 
with postfix).  I'll let you know the results but it will probably be after the 

Thanks very much for the reply, gnu software is always better than the

I suspect that you are encountering a locale issue. Gawk became more locale 
aware, particularly for multibyte locales, during the time those versions were 

Both of them are quite old; 3.1.5 is from 2005 (!) and 3.1.7 is from 2009.
The current version is 4.1.1.

If you try running on the new server with

        export LC_ALL=C

does that fix your problem?
