Understanding the Shared Memory Model in C and C++
For many years, threading was a subject that was ignored by the standards for many years, forcing multicore designers to adopt architecture-specific or OS-specific techniques. However, recently the new editions of C and C++ describe a portable thread model that can replace most of the previous techniques. The biggest addition was not with threading itself, but with the details of shared memory. Different architectures handle shared memory very differently, so an approach that worked fine on your Intel-based workstation will probably fail on your embedded target. Fortunately, the new standards added a portable programming API for doing shared memory and inter-thread synchronization that works regardless of the underlying processor and operating system. Learn how to use C and C++ to write portable, efficient, and reliable algorithms using shared memory.
