Can you talk a little more about why having the input files sorted is a
good thing? This is not a silly question, but is meant to help you focus
on a particular part of the problem: there's something about the sorting
that makes this "merging" problem particularly nice.
[By the way, Stuart's problem is similar to the Unix utility 'comm', which
also requires that its inputs are in sorted order.]
Good luck to you!
