I may be in the wrong forum so please redirect me if that is the case. I am wondering when you use the Cilk-span command on a hybrid program (Cilk, plus a lot of basic c functions) which one does the span use? I have a program that is basically in c, uses pthreads, and I would like to know projected performance data for a higher number of cores. i only have a Xeon with four cores. That is as high as I can go, but I know itis possible to project performance with a higher number of cores with cilk-span.
Again, a program consisting of cilk and c function: how does it handle the cilk-span function.
I am talking about Cilk 5.4.6.
Thanks ina advance.
PS Again if I am in the wrong Forum redirect me.
