ExternalSort is a class that can sort large files similar to the Unix sort command. It can read the file to be sorted in small buckets associated with temporary files to not exceed the configured PHP memory limits. The buckets are sorted individually and then merged to produce the final sorted output. The class provides command line interface options so it can be executed as a command from a shell.
