I would like to ask if there are any good cik about cilk plus to start filk and any kind of source code to use as example. I managed to find some pdfs but since i dont know much about cilk i would like to start from the beggining.

Hello Giannhssdra, Here is a link to a video that gives you an introduction http: The Cilk Plus Evaluation Guide is a good start. It will walk you through the task and data parallelism features of Intel Cilk Plus. Im very confused with the distros of cilk.

I’ve download the gcc branch installed and i tested it with the fibonnaci example. Im reading cilk 5. For example i tried to set the number of proceccors with –nproc and it doesnt take it or other compiler options sush as -cilk-profile -cilk-span I dont know if this an old pdf im reading but i cant find anything else to start with.

It’s a source-to-source translator which converts Cilk code into C and then compiles it. MIT Cilk is an extension of C.

It’s not supported by Intel. It provided a GCC variant and a “sandwich” pluss the Microsoft compiler. Intel Cilk Plus is the merger of the Cilk technology from the Cilk Arts acquisition and data parallization. While the Intel implementation is still ahead of the GCC implementation, you can use the documentation from the Tutoeial Composer XE compiler for your work. There will be some differences, but they should beminor. Intel Cilk Plus does not include the Cilkscreen race detector or Cilkview scalability analyzer.

However, they’ve been ported to the new compiler and are available as a free cllk from the Intel Cilk Plus SDK download page. Hello Gianhssdra, This is just to make sure we are on the same path.


I apologize in advance if this question is redundant. When you said you downloaded GCC branch, did you download the source from “gcc.

To clarify a bit, assume that nothing in the Cilk 4. They are totally different implementations. Thanks a lot Barry This is a vary good start. At least im in the right direction now.

cilk plus tutorials and source code

Everything i tried from here are working. You also told me to download this. I didnt install it yet ,but are these additional tools i can use with cilk through terminal? I installed the gcc branch from gcc. Is there anything else i should install? Main knows nothing about g. Waits only for f which plis for g. Yes, it should work correctly. Balaji is on his way back from the Cauldron conference and will need to look at this when he tutoiral back. When we discuss Cilk programs, we tend to talk about “strands.

So in mainyou’ve got 4 strands:. The 3rd strand is pretty much a waste. So you’ve added a small amount of overhead for nothing. Yes i see plua you mean with cilo extra strand.

But it wont catch the g thread. The parent knows only about his children but not his childrens children. So what happens now? Also why the cilkview and cilkscreen are not running? Im using ubuntu And you’ll note that I spoke of “strands” not “threads.

Cilk Plus Tutorial | CilkPlus

It explicitly does not create a thread. The Cilk runtime will schedule strands on worker threads as it sees fit. So let’s say that Worker0 is executing vilk in your example.

Some time later, an idle worker which we’ll call Worker1 may notice that the continuation is available and steal it. This sets the STOLEN flag in the frame and increments the join counter, indicating that there are outstanding children. When the spawned function running on Worker0 returns, it notes whether it’s parent has been stolen. Ifthe parent has not been stolen,Worker0 returns from f normally.

If the parent has been stolen, the join counter for the parent is decremented. If the result is 0,then Worker0 is the last one to the sync, soWorker0 jumps to the code following the sync in the parent. Otherwise Worker0 goes into the scheduling loop to look for other work to steal.


On the other hand,when Worker1which stole the continuation in the parent is the last one to the sync, it will simply continue executing. If it’s not the last one, it will simply decrement the join counter and go into the the scheduling loop to loop for other work to steal. Thanks that expains a lot I thought that every spawn correspond to a creation of a new thread.

So when the compiler sees a spawn just lets the runtime system know that this strand may run in parallel. But its work of the runtime system to arrange this strand to run in an existing thread. Which version of Cilkscreen are you using? Try using the command “cilkscreen -v” to get the version number. Also, this link may be helpful: Skip to main content.

Hello all I would like to ask if there are any good tutorials about cilk plus to start with and any kind of source code to use as example. Anyone who has anything fro share please give a link. For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Tutoria.

Log in to post tutorjal. I hope that helps! Hello Thanks for the answers. Here’s a quick history lesson: Also can you explain to me why this is a seg fault?

Main thread waits for both f and g. So in mainyou’ve got 4 strands: From the function entry to the spawn of f From the spawn of f to the spawn of g From the spawn of g to the sync From the sync to the end of the routine The 3rd strand is pretty much a waste. Of course, there’s lots of details I’m glossing over, but that’s the basic tutoriao. What sort of error message are you getting? Leave a Comment Please sign in to add a comment.
