Let's say `x1' and `x2' are very long vectors (length=5e5, say) with same
set of names but in different order. If I want to sort `x2' in the order of
`x1', I would do
but the amount of time that takes is quite prohibitive! Does anyone have
any suggestion on a more efficient way to do this?
If the two vectors are exactly the same length (as I said above), sorting
both by names would probably be the fastest. However, if the two vectors
differ in length (and the names for the shorter one are a subset of names of
the longer one) then that doesn't work...
