Hi BillWoodruff,
glad for your feedback, you are right but (at least for now) I have got nothing new to share on sort front.

>If you take the time to publish an article, you may get some very interesting feedback on optimizing your own algorithm further.
Agree, but it turns out that I am not good at writing articles, I have been criticized many times that my first article is an example of how not to write an article. I think I am into tests not into explaining. Moreover my level of understanding is still of a beginner and don't feel I am the one who is to write, my current desire is to outline the subject not to run into it.

I just wished to give some benchmarks and to emphasize that good things (well-written code here) don't age by reminding Bob Pirko's exemplary work.

Also THOMAS NIEMANN wrote a very good pure C tool for external sort which in my view is an excellent example how to deal with external sorting at:
Work C++ Algorithm of External Natural Merge Sort with Non-decreasing and Decreasing Ordered Sub Sequences[^]

As you can see my way of approaching things is a practical one with emphasis on testing.
The man who has got something to say is Mr. Emerald, I prefer to be guest rather than host.

Please give me (if possible) a link to your dragon avatar in better quality, I wonder what are its eyes made of.

Best regards,
Kaze
