Research into automatic extraction of instruction-level parallelism and data parallelism from sequential languages by compilers has been going on for many years. However, task parallelism has been almost unexploited by parallelizing compilers. It has been shown that coarse-grain task parallelism is a useful additional resource of parallelism for multiprocessors, but the simple and restricted execution models of the automatic compilers have resulted into poor performance figures.
