Parallel Programming with Microsoft Visual C++

Friday, January 14, 2011 – 4:58 PM

cpp_cover_small4This week we have some more material available for “Parallel Programming with Microsoft Visual C++”. The latest drop on CodePlex includes another new chapter and the glossary:

Chapter 2 – Parallel Loops

Use the Parallel Loop pattern when you need to perform the same independent operation for each element of a collection or for a fixed number of iterations. The steps of a loop are independent if they don’t write to memory locations or files that are read by other steps.

The PDF on CodePlex also includes the latest versions of the Preface, Introduction and Chapters 6 & 7 with modifications based on reviewer feedback.

In addition to the new text we’ve also published the samples to all the chapters including Chpater 5 – Futures. Each chapter contains basic samples of using the Parallel Pattern Library or Asynchronous Agents Library as well as a complete example that shows a more real world application and demonstrates both a sequential and parallel solutions.

We would really like feedback on both the text and the samples. Please download them from CodePlex and post your feedback or questions there.

  2. In some extent sometimes I try to guess what the next part could contain. Actually waiting for this precious to come out is taking my breath away. Very nice job.
