A good thing with this earlier fmt_init() is in case a format caps the max OMP num threads (not sure if any format does that currently, but it does make sense in some cases), it will be reflected in the benchmark output, the (nxOMP). This can avoid some confusion. By the way, I guess if a format does that, the capped value will remain effective for subsequent formats (when running --test of all formats). Not a big deal, we can address it if/when needed. magnum
