sort help

I would like to ask for the equivalent option in Linux of this AIX command:
Code:
sort -A

I tried "man sort" from AIX and it gives me:
Code:
-A     Sorts on a byte-by-byte basis using ASCII collation order instead of collation in the current locale.

However in Linux this seems to be not available. Pls. advise.

TIA

Code:
LC_ALL=C sort ...

Is there a way to call this from the command line?

On AIX, it was executed as:
Code:
sort -A a.txt

Need to run this on Linux. Pls. help
