That approach works only for *.INT routines. Don't you use *.MAC and *.INC as well?


your initial question should be reformulated as "how to find global's [main] database" because all namespaces have "equal rights" for any global which is visible from (= mapped to) them.

Julias is quite correct in his answering, but you should take into account that it concerns the global's main database only. If global subscript mapping is used, the full solution to get the list of all databases where the global is partially mapped is a more tricky task. If somebody is interested, I can write about how I solved it once.

Almost 15 minutes !!!

What about the second pass with the same ObjectScript code w/o restarting IRIS? 1.7GB is not too much to be stored in the file system cache, so it should be ~5 times quicker. Besides, it's well-known that Cache (IRIS) as a record reader is not so good as a block reader. Everybody knows that %GIF is 5-10 times quicker than %GI. I have the same experience with my own developments: processing files at the block level (read block#$$$BLOCKSIZE) with records parsing at the COS level is quicker than read it record by record. `5*5=25` is close to the time difference between your ObjectScript and Python code runs.

I've written this just to emphasize that we should love Python mostly for the power of its ecosystem, as Nigel wrote. As to speed, it would be better if you InterSystems guys do something to improve file i/o record level operations in IRIS engine...
