This file give some information about the source code for
RPSORT. It is based on my limited understanding, so should not be
taken as totally reliable.
1. At the end of the ASM file you will find a series of routines
to be used depending on the type of sort key and other options
which are called for in the command line.
I believe that these routines are strung together when the
command line is parsed to form the program that controls the
2. A few of these routines are commented out. These are intended for
sorting numeric sort keys. (display format)
This option was not completed.
3. For a general description of the sort process used see page 3
of the RPSORT.DOC file. See also pages 18-21 for more details on
the sort/merge process for files larger than memory.
4. The program was written to be assembled by the Borland Turbo
Assembler version 2.5.
I would be glad to hear of any improvements, additions or
any comments that anyone has:
