ufraw-batch for multi processors

this page has been migrated to our new wiki site

If you are a command line kind of person , don't forget ufraw-batch. If you have multi or dual core processors, you can take advantage of it in order to utilize both cores to process RAW photos faster. The idea is to split the workload so that the operating system can do multi-processing. A simple way of doing this is processing odd numbered files on one process and even numbered files on another. Something like this:

odds=`ls *[13579].raw`
evens=`ls *[02468].raw`
for Oraw in $odds; do ufraw-batch [options] $Oraw; done &
for Eraw in $even; do ufraw-batch [options] $Eraw; done &
