Re: how to merge many files of sorted hashes?
in thread how to merge many files of sorted hashes?
thank you very much! this sounds exactly like what i'm looking for.
on a second thought, maybe i do not HAVE to push everything inside a single file, but just keeping a few files. i need to think about this point, because i'll need to do pairwise comparison after constructing these hash tables (table against table) by looking for common keys. originally i thought that by having all keys sorted in a single file, it's really easy for me to make such comparisons. but maybe having several files can save a lot more cost at the table construction stage.
