Hello.

Is the parallel package working with windows version of Octave or not?

Regards

Parallel Package under Windows unusable and will probably continue so ... (?)[edit]

Dear all,

I wonder why this information is so difficult to find and why it is not prominently written on the project page:

The parallel package seems to NOT run under Windows due to lack of some system components.

Took the information from these links:

[1] and [2]

Also while I do not exactly got the content of the postings, things look like

  • parallel does actually not work under windows and
  • regrettably will also not work under windows

Please correct me if I got it wrong.

It is really a pity that Octave cannot use multiple cores under windows .....

Any positive perspective for near future?

Cheers
