comment Special characters in /etc/issue
@wilf Everyone knows that. The intent is clear - no need for "run the following as root" or "you need to have administrative rights". You'll see this used everywhere in command-line examples on the web and at SE sites. The # $ prefixes are useful to distinguish between commands and output.

What about doing simply sort -t';' -k4 -u file?

comment Special characters in /etc/issue
@wilf @ErikCalvalho FYI, using the # and $ before a command is a well established norm to express "run the following command as root" or "run the following command as normal user", respectively, so please don't make any more edit suggestions to that particular issue. The command here needs to have root privileges, so it's important to point out.

comment why is there no name showing at the command line?
Which shell is used here? How do you login as the user? From a TTY or maybe through su user? What's the output of [ -f ~/.bashrc ] && cat ~/.bashrc || echo no .bashrc?
