Marcio has asked that the following message be posted here.  A quick
background: Judy is a data structure similar to hashes which has very good
speed and scalability characteristics.

Let's put your theory to the test :)

I've finished put together a set of wrappers for Judy using SWIG. The current
download supports Python right out-of-the-box (even if you don't have SWIG
installed), but by changing the Makefile and re-running SWIG you should be
able to generate wrappers for ruby, perl, java, scheme, guile, etc.

The download includes source, some docs, the SWIG interface files and a
demo program called "JudySort.py" (gosh, I wonder where I got that idea).
You'll find details and download instructions here:


Have fun,
