One further method for possibly speeding the process would be to break your
file into 3 or 4 subsets and sort each independently. Then rebuild the
large file by interleaving it
set small1 small2 small3;
by index1 index2 etc ;
Of course, it might also be a good time to ask whether you need to move to
a computer with a lot more horsepower and memory.
