Join Command

Dear Sir/Madam:

The man page for the join command mentions that the input files must be sorted 
on the join fields. I noticed that if numeric sorting is used, the output of 
join misses some data. So join works properly only if lexicographic  sorting is 
used. Is this done by design? If so, I am wondering what the reason behind this 
restriction  is. Thank you for your help.

Best regards,

Tarek Al-Enawy Hassan
