|A new version of l2hPrecreateSet.pl is available.|
The new version precreates problems ordered by psvn number and also gives you the option of just precreating problems for psvn's in a certain range. If you are using 5 digit psvn's, they will range between 10000 and 99999.
For example if you have a dual processor server which is lightly loaded in the morning, you could run two simultaneous l2hPrecreateSet.pl jobs (both niced), e.g.
nice /ww/webwork/system/scripts/l2hPrecreateSet.pl mth161 set2.def 10000 55000 >& set2a.log &
nice /ww/webwork/system/scripts/l2hPrecreateSet.pl mth161 set2.def 55001 >& set2b.log &
Also if you run l2hPrecreateSet.pl and for some reason it dies at psvn 45689, you could (with the new version) run it again starting with psvn 45689 which is a lot faster. l2hPrecreateSet.pl will not recreate problem images which already exist but it will do quite a bit of processing before it discovers that a problem image already exists so skipping over this saves time.
Note there is also an l2hPrecreateProb.pl is you simply want to precreate images for a single problem (e.g. if you edited a problem after precreating a set).
Simply run l2hPrecreateSet.pl or l2hPrecreateProb.pl with no parameters for help with the syntax. Doing this for 2hPrecreateSet.pl yields:
webwork ~ l2hPrecreateSet.pl
Email me if you would like the new version.
