But occasionally youth and meticulous attention-to-detail pay off. In a rather wild four-day weekend, gz-sort was born. It took two days to write an efficient core and another two days to add/debug multithreading. Right now it works well enough for my purposes, but keep in mind how rough the code base is. How does it fare on the Freebase dump?
