 CxC: C for Parallel Computing

C/C++ Users Journal takes a look at CxC.

"Under the hood, CxC's runtime environment automatically maps the virtual processors you define in your CxC program to the real processors in the current configuration. In addition, CxC automatically handles the communications between nodes in the most efficient way possible: shared memory between processors on the same SMP box, or message passing between separate boxes in a cluster connected by a high-speed network. The programmer never has to worry about the real topology, or whether to use shared memory or message passing for coordination."
