comment Checking if a command is a built-in in ksh
@Gilles, you cannot redefine a builtin as a function in AT&T ksh88 though (at least not on Solaris).

comment Using sed, add line X lines above match
@Misiur, that'll be an old version of gawk where {} were not enabled unless in POSIX compatibility mode. Best is to use the POSIXLY_CORRECT=1 like in my update to make it work without affecting compatibility with other awk implementations.

comment Unix sort out of memory
@roaima, there's nothing in the OP's question that specifies that /bigdisk is not at least in part backed by RAM. drevicko makes it clear that his/her answer's premise is that /bigdisk is RAM-backed. It will certainly help people with the same problem even if not the OP, so doesn't deserve a downvote I would say.
