Merge sorted sequences

Category: Python - Education

The usual approach to merging is to loop through both sequences taking the smallest from each until they are both exhausted. Python's "timsort" function detects order in underlying sequences and will run a C speed merge on the data. So, all that is involved is concatenating the sequences and running a sort. Date: 20 April, 2012
