I am presently attempting to write a program that will utilize the Balanced two way sort/merge algorithm.  I have a file of record containing auto part data indexed by part number.  I wish to take my data file(file of records) sort them and write the data to a new file.  I have an algorithm that I am having difficulty understanding.  If you have any documentation or reference material that may be helpful I would appreciate it.
