I am experimenting with cilk as part of a project that I have to do for my studies.
For my first post here, I'd like to pose a question concerning the versions of the cilk++ sdk that are available for download from the intel website.
Following the links from the starting page, I got to http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-cilk-plus-software-develo...
Now I found this document online called "Intel_Cilk++_Programmers_Guide". Google it and you will find it. It looked like a good way to get things going with cilk++. It shows how to build an example called "qsort" using cilk++ and running it with the cilk++ runtime system.
The problem I am having is that there is no binary called "cilk++" in the sdk I downloaded and the examples are missing. I found all of this here: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-intel-cilk-sdk/
The warning however tells me that this is outdated.
I am using Linux Mint 12 (lisa) and as my compiler: Intel C++ Intel 64 Compiler XE for applications running on Intel 64, Version 12.1 Build 20120212, sind I was having trouble installing gcc4.7, and the intel compiler seems to be working fine.
After having installed the Intel composer, I found some examples under '/opt/intel/composer_xe_2011_sp1.9.293/Samples/en_US/C++/cilk_samples' which I was able to compile after fixing some library/include paths, so not really a problem.
My question is, since I can only find cilkscreen and cilkview in the bin folder of the "newest" cilk++ sdk, is the cilk++ binary something that no longer exists and shouldn't be used? Or is this new sdk just an addon for the previous version which can be downloaded in the second link I posted?
