External-Memory Sorting in Java: useful to sort very large files using multiple cores and an external-memory algorithm.


The versions 0.1 of the library are compatible with Java 6 and above. Versions 0.2 and above
require at least Java 8. 

This code is used in [Apache Jackrabbit Oak](https://github.com/apache/jackrabbit-oak).

Code sample
------------

```java
import com.google.code.externalsorting.ExternalSort;

//... inputfile: input file name
//... outputfile: output file name
// next command sorts the lines from inputfile to outputfile
ExternalSort.mergeSortedFiles(ExternalSort.sortInBatch(new File(inputfile)), new File(outputfile));
// you can also provide a custom string comparator, see API
```
