To Do This
The drop-down list near the right of this pane.
Select one of four topics to copy. The first three provide example annotated source code for various task code structures. The last provides build settings for the language in use. The selections are:
  • Iteration Loop, Single Task
    - View and copy an annotation code snippet for a simple loop structure, where the task's code includes the entire loop body. Use this common task structure when only a single task is needed within a parallel site.
  • Loop, One or More Tasks
    - View and copy an annotation code snippet for a loops where the task code does not include all of the loop body, or for complex loops or code that requires specific task begin-end boundaries, including multiple task end annotations. Also use this structure when multiple tasks are needed within a parallel site.
  • Function, One or More Tasks
    - View and copy an annotation code snippet for code that calls multiple functions (task parallelism). Use this structure when multiple tasks are needed within a parallel site.
  • Pause/Resume Collection
    - View and copy an annotation code snippet whose annotations temporarily pause data collection and later resume it. This lets you skip uninteresting parts of the target program's execution to minimize the data collected and speed up the analysis of large applications. Add these annotations outside a parallel site.
  • Build Settings
    - View and copy build (compiler and linker) settings. The Build Settings are specific to the language in use.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserverd for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
