I was trying to play around with the new parallel library features proposed in the C++17 standard, but I couldn't get it to work. I tried compiling with the up-to-date versions of
g++ 8.1.1 and
-std=c++17, but neither seemed to support
std::execution::par or anything similar.
When looking at the cppreference for parallel algorithms there is a long list of algorithms, claiming
Technical specification provides parallelized versions of the following 69 algorithms from
memory: ( ... long list ...)
which sounds like the algorithms are ready 'on paper', but not ready to use yet?
In this SO question from over a year ago the answers claim these features hadn't been implemented yet. But by now I would have expected to see some kind of implementation. Is there anything we can use already?
You can refer here to check all
C++17 feature implementation status. For your case, just search
Standardization of Parallelism TS, and you will find only
Intel C++ compilers support this feature now.
