Hi Kay,


Thanks for the info.  I'm not sure how to convert multiple files at once in my Makefile, but I will look into it.


I have managed to modify edl2adl use mkstemp() and thus be usable from parallel make.  I'd like to know where to commit my changes so others can use them, and to make sure I am using the latest version of the converter.


I can now convert all 61 adl files in areaDetector/ADCore/ADApp/op/adl to edm, caQtDM, and CSS-BOY in 27 seconds, so the performance is acceptable already.


Mark

Hi:

Your main question is about edl2adl, not the CSS adl2boy application, but since you mention its speed:
Each time you start
   css -application .. adl2boy..  /path/to/file1.adl
you will incur a startup time.
You can optimize that by calling it as
   css -application .. adl2boy..  /path/to/file1.adl /path/to/file2.adl ... /path/to/file999.adl
to convert a bunch of files with one call, only incurring the startup time once.

Thanks,
Kay
