I'm currently, processing a large module and its links and their links and their links... Think like O(n^5)... at least! I basically, need to look deep in the hierarchy for particular types of objects and report them. As a very predictable consequence, this takes what is known, in some refined circles, as A Very Long Time (TM). Let's say 60-80 hours.
I was wondering if there would be a quick and easy way to loop through the range of object absolute numbers in the module (in 100 or 200 number intervals) and assign each chunk to a separate script. Each script could run in parallel and report its own findings to its own flat text file. I could then write one file to assemble all that information, once the exceedingly time-consuming part of the task is complete.
Problem is, I'm not quite sure how I could do that.
Anyone done this sort of thing before?
