Language Ref states that !DEC$ PARALLEL "enables auto-parallelization for an immediately following DO loop".
Does this apply to an outer loop that has many other loops & subroutine calls etc within it? ie. each cycle of an outer loop processed in a separate thread, even if there is a substantial amount of code within the loop.
That would seem a very simple means of parallel execution & in my case should speed execution significantly (quad core, x64), since I have many 1000's of sites of independent activity. However, when I tried it I see no increase in speed, with CPU usage rarely exceeding 25% - 27%.
