I lost my mind and …

… coded a recursive parallel FBP mergesort, in bash using named pipes:

Also, and more usefully, I learned how to read a line correctly in bash:

IFS= read -r line

Without -r, it processes escaped characters such as \t and \n!

Without IFS=, it strips leading space.

All in all, another couple reasons not to write code in bash!  haha
