[Bioperl-l] indexing with several processors

I notice nobody has responded yet. Without looking at the code I'm 
guessing here, but I would be very surprised if any part of bioperl is 
smart enough to be able to switch to some kind of mpi architecture, or 
any other clever way of parallelizing tasks on multi-processor 
architectures. If you can split the job up by hand and start scripts on 
the chunks, that might work.

Good luck,
