Cilkplus on PPC architecture

Cilkplus on PPC architecture

Hello all,

I am getting this error while I was building cilkplus on a power PC with redhat OS. Does this mean Cilkplus doesn't support power PC?

Bests,

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

It looks like the error message comes from GCC build, so it is hard to say the message indicates that Cilkplus is not supported on PowerPC.

However, it is unlikely that Cilkplus supports PowerPC. There have been sporadic contributions from the community which try to port Cilkplus to Arm or SPARC, but I do not know of any efforts for PowerPC.

Thank you for your reply.
