Using Tasks from the Parallel Programming Library in C++Builder

This How To Video uses the Parallel Programming Library's TTask class to manage procedures that can be executed in parallel threads. The TTask class creates and manages task instances represented by the ITask interface. The task procedures, including C++ lambdas, provided to the constructor are considered ready for execution after calling the Start method. The WaitForAll, WaitForAny, and the Wait methods of ITask are used to explicitly suspend execution of the calling thread to wait upon any or all running tasks. To cancel the execution of any task, call the Cancel method of the relevant instance of ITask. A task procedure can be created and managed for execution directly using the Run method.

Using the For Loop from the Parallel Programming Library in C++Builder

This How To Video shows you how to use the TParallel::For method from the Parallel Programming Library (PPL). TParallel::For splits a for loop into pieces that run in parallel and uses tasks to run those pieces. The VCL and FMX demo applications find the first X prime numbers. This calculation is done with a serial version using the classic C++ for loop and a parallel version using the TParallel::For method.

Using Futures from the Parallel Programming Library in C++Builder

This How To Video shows you how to use C++11 lambda functions with the Parallel Future feature in the Parallel Programming Library. Parallel Future uses TTask::Future to launch a function that returns a specific type. TTask::Future, where the type parameter, T, represents the return type. Using a future allows you to calculate something or run some query and at the same time you can do other tasks, getting the value when you want via future's value. If the value is not completed yet, the Parallel Programming Library blocks the current code waiting for this value to be calculated.
