Adding the Parallel Framework to Your Build Environment

After you choose the parallel framework, you need to add the parallel framework to your build environment.

Adding the parallel framework to your build environment can require installing additional software, as well as modifying build scripts, modifying Microsoft Visual Studio* project properties on Windows OS systems, and so on.

Later, after you add the parallel framework to your build environment, you can begin to make source code changes that use the parallel framework to add synchronization (such as locks) or parallelism to your program.

The following sections describe adding the Intel TBB and OpenMP parallel frameworks to your build environment, including adding C++11 (formerly C++0x) Lambda Expression Support that simplifies the use of Intel TBB.
