Greetings Robert.

Given the assistance you and the other boost cognoscenti
provided while I was developing my project, I feel that I
owe you an update.

What I decided to do in the end was to use a distributed
database model. The code generates a data file for each
preprocessed kernel source file. Rather than squashing
those together into one large database, I left them
distributed in their respective source directories.

The length of time to process the whole kernel now only
takes about 5 minutes on my desktop. The lookup utility
can find anything in less than a minute. Performance is
enhanced all around, though the size of the database
collectively is about ten times larger than if I
compressed it into one file. The trade-off of disk space
for performance was well worth it.

The project is at a decent knee-point, though there are a
few things I'm sure my fellow engineers will want to add
or change.

You can track the progress of the project at

Thanks and regards,
Tony Camuso
