Simplest Example...

Are there any really simple examples?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

The Intel ArBB tutorials contain some very simple examples, such as computing the sum of two vectors and the dot-product of two vectors.

Take a look at Intel ArBB tutorials at:

Then download the source code used in the tutorial:

Here is a simple example that adds two dense containers:


using namespace arbb;

void add(dense& out, dense a, dense b)
out = a + b;

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
std::size_t size = 100; // operating on 100 elements

// vectors of floats to store data for a, b, c
std::vector a_data(size), b_data(size), c_data(size);

try {
dense a, b, c;

// bind data to arbb containers
bind(a, &a_data[0], a_data.size());
bind(b, &b_data[0], b_data.size());
bind(c, &c_data[0], c_data.size());

for (std::size_t i = 0; i < b_data.size(); ++i) {
b_data[i] = 2.0f; // or rand() or something more useful
c_daat[i] = 3.0f;

// call add with a as input/output and b and c as inputs
call(add)(a, b, c);

} catch (exception& e) {
std::cout << "exception thrown: " << e.what() << std::endl;
return 1;

// result is in a_data
for (std::size_t i = 0; i < a_data.size(); ++i) {
std::cout << i << " " << a_data[i] << std::endl;

return 0;
