comment What's the last number in this ip address?
@runeveryday If you open your calculator in binary/hex mode it'll be easier to see. Each bit can have 2 states. Every bit you add will double the number of states you can represent. With 8bits you can have 2^8 = 256 states, thus 0-255.

@camh thanks that did the trick. Didn't realize you could specify which intermediate buffer to use.

comment How to remove duplicate lines in a large multi-GB textfile?
thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately using --output still doesn't fix the out of memory error. Running that still gives me sort: write failed: /root/tmp/sortVxscLn: No space left on device. The problem is a bit annoying in that it doesn't fail right away. It seems like you have to wait for the memory to get exhausted before it will error out.
