Call cilk function from c++

Call cilk function from c++

Hi I am parallelizing an existing serial project, and by far I just want to parallelize a few fucntions into cilk approach. There are lots of source files and I don't want to change all their extensions to .cilk. Is it possible that some upper level c++ codes call a cilk function ? If yes, how ?I found a chapter explaining how to mix c++ and cilk code in your document but only few paragraphs talk about serial code to call cilk code. I still don't quite understand how to do it after reading the document.Thank you very much

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

Intel Cilk Plus doesn't require you to rename your files. It works with standard C and C++ files. One of the major benefits of Intel Cilk Plus over Cilk++ is that it uses standard linkage, so you can call Cilk functions directly from C and C++.

The documentation on Intel Cilk Plus is available at http://software.intel.com/sites/products/documentation/hpc/composerxe/en-us/2011Update/cpp/lin/index.htm#cref_cls/common/cilk_bk_using_cilk.htm
