[mkgmap-dev] [PATCH v4] LocationHook speedup

From WanMil wmgcnfg at web.de on Sat Dec 31 14:15:00 GMT 2011

(Although for a nitpicker your patch is wrong. One could create a 
directory containing one subdir named "123.bnd". This directory would be 
detected as sufficient bounds dir by your patch. But I think we can 
ignore this :-)


> I used another way to optimize that part. On my machine, the list()
> method is much faster than listFiles():
> String [] boundaryFileNames = boundaryDir.list();
> boolean foundBndFile = false;
> for (String s: boundaryFileNames){
> if (s.endsWith(".bnd")) {
> foundBndFile = true;
> break;
> }
> }
> if (!foundBndFile) {
> log.error("Disable LocationHook because boundary directory contains
> files. Dir: "
> + boundaryDir);
> return false;
> }

> I've found and fixed another performance bottleneck:
> The init method of the LocationHook contained a check if there is any
> bounds file in the boundary directory. On my computer this check
> requires ~1200ms. This is done for each tile and must be perfomed once
> only.
> So attached patch saves additionally 1200ms for each tile :-)
