I have a bunch of (rather large i.e. >100MB) comma separated files which needs sorting on 4 processor box with SunOS 5.10
Sort appears to run rather slow (minutes)
I am wondering if there is any way to speed things up, for example making use of more than one processor/core or perhaps by just using some clever sort options?
PS: I am using the entire line as a key so just
sort filename > filename.sorted
