I was looking at some data in a 6MB text file using sort.
When I used the --key flag, the speed of sort was embarrassingly bad.
It was *~80 times slower* on my new Athlon64 processor as on
an old 1GHz P3 using cygwin's sort under Windows 2000!

I ran
grep "konnect 1" Out_konnect | sort --key=4 -n |less

Hmm, are you sure it's all sort's fault?

can you time the following on the suse box:

export LANG=C
time grep -F "konnect 1" Out_konnect | sort --key=4,4n
