Using Futures from the Parallel Programming Library in C++Builder
This How To Video shows you how to use C++11 lambda functions with the Parallel Future feature in the Parallel Programming Library. Parallel Future uses TTask::Future to launch a function that returns a specific type. TTask::Future
Using the For Loop from the Parallel Programming Library in C++Builder
This How To Video shows you how to use the TParallel::For method from the Parallel Programming Library (PPL). TParallel::For splits a for loop into pieces that run in parallel and uses tasks to run those pieces. The VCL and FMX demo applications find the first X prime numbers. This calculation is done with a serial version using the classic C++ for loop and a parallel version using the TParallel::For method.
Using Tasks from the Parallel Programming Library in C++Builder
This How To Video uses the Parallel Programming Library's TTask class to manage procedures that can be executed in parallel threads. The TTask class creates and manages task instances represented by the ITask interface. The task procedures, including C++ lambdas, provided to the constructor are considered ready for execution after calling the Start method. The WaitForAll, WaitForAny, and the Wait methods of ITask are used to explicitly suspend execution of the calling thread to wait upon any...
