LLVM Gets Closer To Supporting OpenMP
Phoronix: LLVM Gets Closer To Supporting OpenMP
While LLVM can be used with Clang for compiling the Linux kernel and LLVM can be used in very innovative ways, one of its long-standing disadvantages has been the lack of supporting OpenMP. Fortunately, OpenMP support is finally materializing within LLVM...
Clomp - OpenMP frontend fro Clang
Also Clang is getting the capabilities to parse OpenMP pragmas. Check out the CLOMP project hosted in github: https://github.com/motonacciu/clomp
For now this is just the frontend part, but when LLVM support is ready we could easily merge the two projects.
Happy to see this.
I'm wondering why Apple hasn't pushed harder to get this in mainline. Seems like it will be important as Macs take over a lot of the development efforts that use to be seen on UNIX.
Weren't threads on OS X expensive? IIRC that was why they did the Grand Central Dispatch thingy.
