This document will help you get started writing code and running applications on a system (host) that includes the Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor based on the Intel® Many Integrated Core Architecture (Intel® MIC Architecture). It describes the available tools and includes simple examples to show how to get C/C++ and Fortran-based programs up and running. For now, the developer will have to cut/paste the examples provided in the document to their system.
This document is available at http://software.intel.com/mic-developer under the "Overview"tab.
This document does:
- Walk you through the Intel® Manycore Platform Software Stack (Intel® MPSS) installation.
