Tue 27 May 2003 11:59:31 PM UTC, original submission:  

Since this method replaces the use of the program sort(1) with the use of the library function qsort(3) - are there any implications for the size of filesystems that find will work on?   (I can't see any immediately, because we already use savedir()).  

I haven't applied the patch, but it looks to me like we don't use qsort on the whole output - is the sorting we do for "-sort" actually equivalent to passing the whole output through "sort"?
