Understand Shared Memory in the C/C++ Standards
For many years, threading was a subject that was ignored by the standards, but starting in 2011, the new editions of C and C++ described a portable thread model. The biggest addition was not with threading itself, but with the details of shared memory. Different architectures handle shared memory very differently, so an old approach that worked fine on the Intel Architecture may fall flat on ARMv8 or QorIQ. Fortunately, the new standards added a portable programming API for doing shared memory and inter-thread synchronization that works regardless of the underlying operating system. Learn how to use the new standards to write portable, efficient, and reliable algorithms using shared memory.
