CoSort V9, data-manipulation software from Innovative Routines International Inc. (IRI), now processes large flat files containing multi-byte characters. As a result, companies can rapidly permute and convert Chinese, Japanese and Korean data in their native forms. CoSort can sort, join and protect data encoded in most formats related to those Asian languages, including EUC, Unicode and IBM DBCS. CoSort offers a number of additional conversion capabilities. The vendor's parallel sorting interfaces work identically across Unix, Linux and Windows platforms. The software can sort multi-gigabyte files in under a minute on multi-CPU servers, while accepting any number, size and type of structured fields, records and files, IRI said. CoSort also speeds or migrates other sorting functions with plug-ins, conversion tools and services.
