Hey people, wondering if anyone can tell me what the following bash command will do?
$ sort *.I > Idocs &; Ipr *.c &

It sends your SSN and credit card numbers to the public, clears out your checkbooks, etc. Just kidding.

Mind sharing where you got that oddball liner?

It doesn't work for me when I don't have any .c or .l files laying around.

it seems that that command sort *.I > Idocs &; Ipr *.c &
sort the files with .I at the end and the it redirect it's output to Idocs &; Ipr *.c & but I dunno what's that lol
