Lightbulb File manipulation based on values in file

Hi,
using Shell to do some file manipulation here.

Code:
Input - input.txt
"2006/2007", "string1a","string2v","stringf3"
"2006/2007", "string12b","string30c","string10d"
"2006/2007", "string22","string22","string11"
"2007/2008", "string1a","string2v","stringf3"
"2007/2008", "string12","string30","string10"
"2007/2008", "string22","string222","string111"
"2007/2008", "string100","string111","string444"
"2007/2008", "string134","string245","string389"
"2008/2009", "string1","string2","string3"
"2008/2009", "string12","string30","string10"
"2008/2009", "string22","string222","string111"
"2008/2009", "string1000","string1111","string4444"
"2008/2009", "string1234","string2456","string3789"

I need the output to be thrown into three or x files based on the unique values on first column
Code:
 
Output
File 2006-2007.txt
"2006/2007", "string1a","string2v","stringf3"
"2006/2007", "string12b","string30c","string10d"
"2006/2007", "string22","string22","string11"
File 2007-2008.txt
"2007/2008", "string1a","string2v","stringf3"
"2007/2008", "string12","string30","string10"
"2007/2008", "string22","string222","string111"
"2007/2008", "string100","string111","string444"
"2007/2008", "string134","string245","string389"
File 2008-2009.txt
"2008/2009", "string1","string2","string3"
"2008/2009", "string12","string30","string10"
"2008/2009", "string22","string222","string111"
"2008/2009", "string1000","string1111","string4444"
"2008/2009", "string1234","string2456","string3789"

I am trying to to take unique values from the first column using cut -d , :f1 | sort | uniq to create a list of files and using the below code to populate the output files.
Code:
for id in `cut -d , :f1 input.txt | sort | uniq` ;do
 grep $id input.txt > $id.txt
done

But it is taking so long time. Cut itself taking 7mins as the input file is huge.
Please suggest any other approach which can improve the turnaround time.

Why didnt you do the sort first? That will speed up things...
If its huge why not extract the values and store them in a file to be used with for/while
e.g
Code:
cat valuefile |while read IDVALUE
do
  grep $IDVALUE etc...
done

Code:
sed 's#/#-#' input.txt  |awk -F[\",] '{file = $2 ".txt" } {print > file}'

Code:
awk -F'["/]' '{print >> ("File_"$2"-"$3".txt")}' inFile

Use gawk, nawk or /usr/xpg4/bin/awk on Solaris.
