syncsort stop after nn records written to sortout

Postby nmartens » Fri Jun 28, 2013 11:31 pm

Is there a way for syncsort to stop after nn records are written to a sort out file when using an include/omit statement?


I want to sample some very large files and would like to stop after I get something like 10 examples.
I've looked at filesz and stopaft, but they don't seem to limit the way I would like

Have a look at STARTREC, ENDREC and SAMPLE in your documentation.

ENDREC will do what you want, but the others may be useful to you.
