I’m not sure of the original source of today’s exercise; it could be a homework problem or an interview question:
Given a huge file of words, print all the distinct words in it, in ascending order; the definition of “huge” is “too big to fit in memory.”
Your task is to write a program to print all the distinct words in a huge file. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
