Daniel Thayer updated BIT-1215:
-------------------------------
    Summary: bro-cut should be rewritten for speed and to not depend on gawk  (was: bro-cut should be rewritten in C for speed and to not depend on gawk)

The current implementation can be compiled with a C++ compiler (and it works), so I guess it's already C++.

> The current implementation of bro-cut is too slow when processing large log files (takes more than a minute to process a single log file a few hundred MB in size).  Justin Azoff rewrote bro-cut in C and found that it runs an order of magnitude faster.  Another benefit of a C version of bro-cut is that we will no longer depend on gawk for anything (and some of Bro's supported platforms do not include gawk by default).
