Multicore Application Programming is a comprehensive, practical guide to high-performance multicore programming that any experienced developer can use. Author Darryl Gove covers the leanding approaches to parallelization on Windows, Linux, and Oracle Solaris. Through practical examples, he illuminates the challenges involved in writing applications that fully utilize multicore processors, helping you produce appllications that are functionally correct, offer superior performance, and scale well to eight cores, sixteen Cores, and beyond. The book reveals how specific hardware implementations impact application performance and shows how to avoid common pitfalls. Step by step, you'll write applications that can handle large numbers of parallel threads, and you'll master advanced parallelization techniques. Multicore Application Programming isn't wedded to a single approach or platform: It is for every experienced C programmer working with any contemporary multicore processor in any leading operating system environment.Listing 1.3 32-Bit x86 Assembly Code to Increment a Variable at an Address movl 4(%esp), %eax // Load value from address %esp + 4 ... The X86 instruction set has a single instruction that adds an increment to a value at a memory location.
