Subject: [OMPI users] General Design Question

I have a small program that I'd like to use two level of parallelization.

I'm doing some image analysis where I'd like to have the image analsys being
parallized and the search through a collection of images.

Currently I have a custum C++ class that does the image manipulation on each
file I'm looking at.

so.. basic pseudo code


   get src image
   process image

   compare src to dst (and repeat for 1 of 1000 different dst objects)

the search seems easy enough to parallelize, but I would need to do the
image analysis split among processors. Would there be any problems with
having MPI initiated and finalized within a class?

sorry if this is confusing, just wanted to run my ideas by some far more
capable individuals, making sure my approach makes some sense.

Thanks again,
