110359     SORT: Utility ASCII Sort  Version: September 1980
Submitted by: Keith R. Craft, Tektronix, Inc., Beaverton, OR
Operating System: RSX-11D, RSX-11M  Source Language: FORTRAN IV-PLUS
Memory Required: 14.5KW  Keywords: Sorting
Abstract: This sort is a multi-user task that sorts sequential
files, either formatted or unformatted, in ascending
and/or descending order. Run time is approximately
linearly proportional to the number of records input,
record length, and the number of sort keys. Sample run
time: 4000 240 byte records (55 byte keys) in 18 minutes
(PDP-11/70, RP04).
Notes: This version has been improved by adding descending order sort
expanded allowable record length, and fixed glitches in use of
command files.
Restrictions: Input file limited to 40,000 records. Sort keys limited
to 80 bytes. Maximum record length arbitrarily set at
1200 bytes (can be modified).
Media (Service Charge Code): Write-Up and Listing (DA), One RX01
