In (info "(coreutils) tsort invocation")

tsort <<EOF
a b c
d
e f
b c d e
EOF

will produce the same output as just

tr \  \\n <<EOF|sort -u
a b c
d
e f
b c d e
EOF

so perhaps make that example a little different -- or mention how the
two differ.

Yes I know the next page goes into more depth, but I'm talking about how
to make a better first impression on the reader.
