par2cmdline with Intel Thread Building Blocks

25 10 2007

Somebody took the sources for the par2 software, added multi-threading support for it with Intel’s Threading Building Blocks and promptly received an award for it. The minimal changes to the original code have been documented. Since the recovery blocks can be calculated independently from each other, parallelizing this process was obvious. Nice to see that somebody did this for a software which I love both for its application of mathematics and practical use.
