Overview: Controlling the Coprocessor's Execution Environment

This topic only applies to Intel® Many Integrated Core Architecture (Intel® MIC Architecture).

You can modify the coprocessor's execution environment using the following mechanisms:

  • Setting environment variables for the coprocessor on the CPU, and passing them to the coprocessor

  • calling functions from the CPU

In general, function calls override environment variables.
