Re: PROOF and static data members

Hi Margar,

    you have to make sure these static data members get properly initialized, which will normally be the case if you load a shared library (or a PROOF par package). But if you change these statics they are not automatically shared between processes when object instances are copied. You'll have to make sure you add the static values in the input list as parameters so the values can be set on all workers (if needed).

Cheers, Fons.
