Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-162) Add utility function for merging output by identity reduce
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2013 12:45:13 GMT


Josh Wills commented on CRUNCH-162:

Delegate the sort-post function to PTable.keys, that one seems easy. I'd make your "sort-pre"
a distinct library function and not worry about the existing sort-pre impl, since we have
plans to (eventually) rewrite the sort stuff to use a custom partitioner to support using
multiple reducers. The trickier issue seems to be what to name this functionality-- should
it have its own lib.* class, or should it drop in to one of the existing classes?
