I was thinking what needs to happen, I'm still learning Julia and if I
understand collect or what you think, then you mean does Julia first have
to get a collection (DenseArray) of everything before starting processing?
I find it very cool to learn, to prepend @edit, to see what Julia does so I
took a look (and I think this all means that it can start applying your
function as you go):
if batch_size == 1
return collect(AsyncGenerator(f, c; ntasks=()->nworkers(p)))
batches = batchsplit(c, min_batch_count = length(p) * 3,
max_batch_size = batch_size)
results = collect(flatten(AsyncGenerator(f, batches;
Yes, collect is used, but while the doc says:
Transform collection c by applying f
AsyncGenerator(f, c...; ntasks=0) -> iterator
Apply f to each element of c using at most ntasks asynchronous tasks. If
ntasks is unspecified, uses max(100, nworkers()) tasks. [..]
