Join Michele Vallisneri for an in-depth discussion in this video ✓ Challenge: Parallel search, part of Python: Programming Efficiently.
- [Instructor] For your challenge, write a simple…multi-processing program based on Pool…that finds the index of word in a large dictionary,…such as the list of words words.gz…contained in the exercise files.…Use a brute force search divided among processes.…This is a ridiculously simplified version…of how search engines run on classes of machine.…Some hints, read the file words…before setting up the pool…so it will be available in all processes.…
Use gzip.open to read a gzip-compressed text file.…Good luck.…
