BSD Sort

BSD sort is BSD-licenced implementation if Unix(TM) sort utility. Feature wise, it's on-par with GNU sort, but is faster and smaller. BSD sort uses radixsort as the core of the sorting functionality itself.

BSD sort is developed within NetBSD, and is distributed as part of it since 2001, replacing formerly used GNU sort. The first official NetBSD release BSD sort would appear to would be the soon to be released NetBSD 1.6.

Since it's usable to have a really free sort implementation around, this project has formed, which wraps the NetBSD sort with portability code, so that the software can be compiled and used also on other platforms.
