Parallelizing C Code

The Oracle Developer Studio C compiler can optimize code to run on shared-memory multiprocessor/multicore/multithreaded systems. The compiled code can execute in parallel using the multiple processors on the system. Both explicit (using OpenMP) and automatic parallelization methods are available. This chapter explains how you can take advantage of the compiler’s parallelizing features.
