You might try modifying a standard sort/merge operation. A brief pseudocode description is:

SortByBugID("BugDescriptions","BugDescriptions.s"); SortByBugID("BugComments","BugComments.s"); BD = open "<BugDescriptions.s" COM = open "<BugComments.s" OUT = open ">ResultFile" curBD = <BD> curCOM = <COM> while !BD.eof && !COM.eof { if curBD.BugID < curCOM.BugID { write OUT, curBD curBD = <BD> } elsif curBD.BugID == curCOM.BugID { curBD.Comment .= curCOM.Comment curCOM = <COM> } else { die "Missing bug description?" } }

If you're interested in this method, I have an earlier node with working code for a similar problem.
