Talk:Parallel package

From Octave
Jump to navigation Jump to search


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


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?
