Re: C++ Memory Mapped Files Trouble
Hmm, that's an interesting idea actually. Creating one folder including thousands of files...

And what about searching the files according to names (timestamp) for the reader applications?...
I don't have this hardware setup now, it will be in the real system, so I have to develop it first on my personal computer.
Do you have any estimation for the performance?
Furthermore, if wirting and reading a file from hard drive doesn't cost too much and decide to go with that way, also I can create a circullar array in memory (shared memory perhaps), while writing the data to the file, I can add a new element to my "metadata array" as well with timestamp and a unique id attributes and I can give this unique id to filenames. So the reader applications can make the search first from this meta data array (without going to harddrive) and if the data is found then they can search the file from hard drive with this unique id. (How much time does it take to search a File with id (name) in for exmaple 100000 file sized repository???)
Yeah it seems really cool, only question is can I match that writing speed??? Yeah I have to try and see I think...
Thank you very much again.
