Enh Rqst: parallel processing by doxypress

Post by marlowa »

It would be nice if doxypress processed the files in parallel, given how common multi-core machines are these days.

This would involve a complete redesign of the entire program. DoxyPress requires multiple passes to gather documentation from different sources and then collate the data. Processing the files could potentially be done using multithreading however the later stages could not due to cross referencing.

ok, but how about using threads when running dot? doxygen does this and there is a config parameter for the maximum number of threads.

Internally it actually does not work the way you might expect. There are better ways to improve performance and we are exploring several options.
