ADDROUT was a sorting technique which sorted relative record numbers
instead of data, thus reducing the size of the output file in the days
when data storage space was limited and expensive (which of course
caused the Y2K problem ...)  What is interesting is how ADDROUT evolved
into alternate index processing on the S/36, followed by logical views
of relational databases on the S/38 and AS/400, thus reducing the need
for the old $SORT and #GSORT utilities.
Would I be opening a can of worms by mentioning CCP ...?
