Presto is an object-oriented threads package for writing parallel programs on a shared-memory multiprocessor. The system adds thread objects and synchronization objects to C++ to allow programmers to create and control parallelism. Presto's object-oriented structure, along with its user-level thread implementation, simplifies customization of thread management primitives to meet application-specific needs. The performance of thread primitives is crucial for parallel programs with fine-grained… CONTINUE READING
