> Woo! Faster bro-cut! For everyone on bro-dev that didn't know what was going on, Justin and Daniel just rewrote bro-cut as a C tool and *greatly* improved it's speed. Justin/Daniel, could one of you comment on here with a rough estimate of how much faster bro-cut is now?
For me, the new bro-cut runs roughly 10x faster than
the old one (the exact amount of speedup depends on which
hardware and bro-cut options you're using). Another
benefit of the new bro-cut is that Bro no longer depends
on gawk for anything.
