      Description

      We currently have COSORT which is implemented slightly strangely. It would be better if the partition created by any sort could be saved as a dataset, and that partition used to partition any other dataset.

      I don't have any good ideas how to include it into the ECL language - or how to represent it in the ecl graph, but there are several other examples where an activity could do with generating multiple outputs (JOIN) which would also benefit if it was solved.
