Christian’s First Experiments with Tasking in OpenMP 3.0

From Christian Terboven’s blog:

OpenMP 3.0 is out, maybe a bit later than we hoped for, but I think that we got a solid standard document.

Motivated by Alex’ talk I tried the updated Nanos compiler and prepared a couple of examples for my lectures on Parallel Programming in Maastricht and Aachen. In this post I am walking through the simplest one: Computing the Fibonacci number in parallel.
