Intel® Cilk™ Plus runtime library Index: 1. BUILDING 2. USING 3. DOXYGEN DOCUMENTATION 4. QUESTIONS OR BUGS 5. CONTRIBUTIONS # # 1. BUILDING: # To distribute applications that use the Intel Cilk Plus language extensions to non-development systems, you need to build the Intel Cilk Plus runtime library and distribute it with your application. To build the libcilkrts.so runtime library component, you need the autoconf and automake packages, which are available through your favorite package manager. You also need a C/C++ compiler that supports the Intel Cilk Plus language extensions, since the runtime uses Intel Cilk Plus features internally. Use either the Intel® C++ Compiler (icc command) v12.1 or later, or the "cilkplus" branch in GCC (gcc command). Once you have the necessary prerequisites installed, you can use the following commands to create the library: % libtoolize % aclocal % automake --add-missing % autoconf % ./configure % make % make install This will produce the libcilkrts.so shared object. To install the library in a custom location, set the prefix while running the configure script: % ./configure --prefix=/your/path/to/lib # # 2. USING: # The Intel® C++ Compiler will automatically try to bring in the Intel Cilk Plus runtime in any program that uses the relevant features. GCC requires explicit linking of both the library and its dependencies (libpthread, libdl). For example: % gcc foo.c -lcilkrts -lpthread -ldl # # 3. DOXYGEN DOCUMENTATION: # The library source has Doxygen markup. Generate HTML documentation based on the markup by changing directory into runtime and running: % doxygen doxygen.cfg # # 4. QUESTIONS OR BUGS: # Issues with the Intel Cilk Plus runtime can be addressed in the Intel Cilk Plus forums: http://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-cilk-plus/ # # 5.

The upstream copy of the library is maintained via the BSD-licensed version available at: http://cilkplus.org/ Changes to the Intel Cilk Plus runtime are welcome and should be contributed to the upstream version via http://cilkplus.org/. ------------------------ Intel and Cilk are trademarks of Intel Corporation in the U.S. and/or other countries.
