Error when I use the function distribute(array) from the libray DistributedArrays

When I create an array and after I use the distribute() function from the Distributed Arrays library, I get this error:

ERROR: On worker 2:

I’m facing a similar issue. Any idea?

#3

The issue happens when I add child processes from a function within a module. The child processes do not see the module itself but I couldn’t use the using statement either because it’s inside a function. Moving to the addprocs call out to a script avoids this problem. I’m wondering however if there’s a better way to do this though…
