New OpenMP book published
By vtatkar on Sep 30, 2007
Its nice to see a new book on OpenMP published by some of the experts in this area.
See here for details.
One of the authors, Ruud van der Paas, works very closely with my compiler teams and with customers, so this book is sure to have practical and down to earth suggestions. I havent read it yet, myself.
PS. For those not quite in the know,here's a simple description of OpenMP:
OpenMP is a set of APIs for SMP programming in C, C++ and Fortran. It consists of a set of compiler directives, library routines, and environment variables that influence run-time behavior.
Jointly defined by a group of major computer vendors, OpenMP is a portable, scalable model that gives programmers a simple and flexible interface for developing parallel applications for platforms ranging from the desktop to the supercomputer.
