Sorting Gigabytes of Strings Without Storing Themby neversaint (Deacon)
|on Dec 22, 2008 at 14:59 UTC||Need Help??|
neversaint has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a set of strings with upto 2GB lines.
Is there an memory efficient way to sort these strings?
I can always stored them in array then apply the standard sort function. But I have memory problem with that classical approach.
neversaint and everlastingly indebted.......
