anyone know how to use the 'join' command to join the following two
files or to be able to use the 'sort' command for setup to 'join' them?
read that the first column in both files must be the same in order to
join them, but no matter how many ways ive tried to sort them, i cant
get the numbers before the names in file1...im sure the ' : ' delimiters
play a role somewhere...appreciate any advice....
