comment How to sort so that caml is after c in an xml?
For me, just running sort on those two lines causes the "c" line to be printed before the "caml" line, so something else must be going on. Does the "caml" line contain extra leading whitespace in your file?

What program are you using to sort the lines, and how are you invoking it? Just doing a bytewise comparison should get you the results you want.

comment how to redirect file write from home folder to specific folder in UNIX
Not all Unix-based systems (e.g., Mac OS X, used by the OP) place users' home directories in /home/username, and so using a tilde is far more portable.

comment Is it possible to permanently disable internet access under Ubuntu?
Remove the wireless card from the computer (that's still a separate piece, right?) and give it to whomever you'll be turning your thesis in to, with strict instructions not to return it until you show up with your paper.
