OpenMP + Windows + free = MINGW32 ?

Post by Dani » Mon Mar 17, 2008 10:14 am

Hello,

I read in the Sunday Meetings that there were some questions regarding OpenMP on windows. At my job I have explored several options for threading, and obviously, I looked into OpenMP. I used it successfully under windows with Mingw32 Tech Preview. I haven't trued to copile blender under windows with this solution and I don't have multi core to test on.

+ binutils + win32api + ...

It would need some tweaking of the scons files to build with the tech preview but the few tests I made show that loops get threaded as they should.
